Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition

Call Deadline: 02-Nov-2011

Language acquisition is one of the best examples of the necessity of a
multidisciplinary approach to the study of human language as it is
represented by cognitive sciences. Social, cognitive and motor skills
accompanying the development of linguistic systems and the development of
a particular language by children cannot be considered independent from one
another. The reflection on the development of linguistic categories in the child
first grammar raises important issues which can be summarized as follows:

a. Do children grammars differ from adult grammar models? If they do, in
what do they differ?
b. What the evolution of such grammars into adult grammars consists of?
c. What is present, in the child's mind, when the acquisition process begins?
d. Which mechanisms are used in the course of the acquisition process ?
e. What type of input drives the learning system from the initial phases to the
more advanced ones?
f. Do children rest on the gradual knowledge of social conventions or do they
engage in a structural sophisticated analysis?
g. Is it reasonable to assume that different processes are in place during
acquisition (Bloom, 1994), for vocabulary, syntax, morphology, and that they
are somehow related to each other?

The review on language acquisition will focus on the most general questions
as well as on the following topics:

- Language and cognition
- Language and theories of mind
- Ontogenesis and phylogenesis
- Acquisition of linguistic systems and subsystems
- Language acquisition and sign language
- Language acquisition and language disorders
- Experimental methodologies for data elicitation and analysis
- Language acquisition and linguistic theories
- Second language acquisition
- Bilingual acquisition
