Dear Colleague,
   I am writing to seek your advice.
   Is there any work which investigate the acquisition of an ergative

(a-i) as a first language,
(a-ii) as a second language,

(b-i) at the level of simple sentences, and/or
(b-ii) at the level of subordination or coordination (i.e. syntactic
ergativity) ?

   I know only one work:
Pye, C. 1990. The acquisition of ergative languages. Linguistics

   Thanking you in advance for your help,

Tasaku Tsunoda
