Abstract:

This book provides new insights into the acquisition of functional categories
in child language. Operating within the Minimalist Framework (Chomsky 1995) it
examines in particular the availability of Determiner Phrases in the grammar
of young children acquiring Spanish as a first language.

The analysis reveals an interaction in child grammar around the production of
bare nominals, proto-determiners and full determiner phrases. Socarrás
performs both qualitative and quantitative analyses to point to a link between
the development stages children go through, and the occurrence of these
elements in their speech.

The work goes on to address the language acquisition debate between the
continuity and discontinuity hypotheses, aligning the findings with a
conclusion on how best to organise the theory.
