The Annual Review is devoted to research in the domain of first language acquisition, i.e., the process of acquiring command of a first language, and studies in which first language acquisition is compared to second language acquistion, as well as studies on language acquisition under abnormal conditions. It focuses on research which has been reported in recently defended Ph.D. theses. The major share of contributions to the yearbook consist of 10.000 word (approximately) excerpts from, or edited summaries of, dissertations addressing issues in first language acquisition, including bilingual first language acquisition.
