Abstract:

Semantics usually deals with adult language, and language acquisition
usually is studied from the perspective of syntax or from a functional
perspective, but not systematically from a formal semantic one.

This volume contains a collection of writings that focuses on semantic
phenomena and their interpretation in the analysis of the language of a
learner. The variety of phenomena that are addressed is substantial:
temporal aspect and tense, specificity, quantification, scope, finiteness,
focus structure, and focus particles. The number of languages in which
these phenomena are investigated is very large as well: Dutch, English,
German, Inuktitut, Italian, Japanese, and Polish, to name a few. The volume
creates a theoretical as well as an empirical bridge between semantic
research on the one hand and psycholinguistic acquisition studies on the other.
