Journal of Child language Special Issue on ATYPICAL Language Development

This is a call for papers for a special issue of JCL, focusing on Atypical
Language Development. Such papers would include theory and data on
children who are acquiring their first language in atypical ways, attributable
to either developmental (i.e., genetic, including but not limited to children
with autism, Williams Syndrome, Down Syndrome, fragile X syndrome,
Specific Language Impairment) or acquired (e.g., neonatal or early
experienced brain damage or maltreatment) etiologies. Highest priority will
go to papers which are not just descriptions of the problem in various clinical
populations, but test theories and/or compare children cross-linguistically.

Relevant questions could involve what the attested language delays and
deficits reveal about:
- the processes of language acquisition: For example, which processes
of language development proceed similarly to the typical case? Are some
aspects of language development delayed because of deficits in other aspects
that need to be acquired first?
- the representation & organization of language: For example, do the
delays/deficits adhere to/follow the subcomponents of language? To what
extent do the delays/deficits reveal how language relies on non-linguistic
- the biology/neuropsychology/genetics of language: For example, what
is the relationship between the timing of typical and atypical language
development and different aspects of brain development? How can we tie
together processes at the gene, neural, and behavioral levels?

Papers should be a maximum of 10,000 words, but shorter papers would be
preferred. The deadline for submission is June 24th 2011.
Submissions should be made on Manuscript Central:
In your covering letter please state that the manuscript is to be considered
for this special issue. Instructions for Contributors are available on
Manuscript Central.
