Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced title.

Psycholinguist Maya Hickmann presents an original comparative study of
discourse development in English, French, German, and Chinese. Hickmann
discusses the main theoretical issues in the study of first language
acquisition and provides a wide review of available studies in three
domains of child language: person, space and time. Her findings concern the
rhythm of language acquisition, its formal and functional determinants, and
its universal vs. language-specific aspects. The conclusions stress the
importance of relating sentence and discourse determinants of acquisition
in a crosslinguistic perspective.
