Summary:   Dear colleagues,

I asked for references regarding compounding in bilinguals and
received several helpful suggestions (and information on works in
progress). Many thanks to the following people: Elena Nicoladis, Jose
Centeno, Lois Bloom, Victoria Murphy, Lynn Alan Eubank.

These were the suggestions:

Bloom, L., Lahey, M., Hood, L., Lifter, K., & Fiess, K. (1980). Complex
sentences: Acquisition of syntactic connectives and the meaning relations
they encode. Journal of Child Language, 7, 235-261.

Bloom, L., Tackeff, J., & Lahey, M. (1984). Learning "to" in complement
construction. Journal of Child Language, 11, 391-406.

Clahsen, H. 1995. German plurals in adult second language acquisition:
Evidence for a dual-mechanism model of inflection. In L. Eubank, L.
Selinker, & M. Sharwood Smith (eds.), -The current state of interlanguage.
Amsterdam: John Benjamins.

Lardiere, D. (1995). L2 acquisition of English synthetic compounding is
not constrained by level-ordering (and neither, probably, is L1). Second
Language Research, 11 pg 20-56.

Comments to the above by Marcus, and Lardiere's reply in vol. 3 of the
1995 SLR Journal.

Lardiere, D. 1998. Parameter-resetting in morphology: Evidence from
compounding. In M. Beck (ed.), Morphology and its interfaces in second
language knowledge. Amsterdam: John Benjamins.

Stockwell, R.P., Bowen, J.D., and Martin, J.W. (1965). The Grammatical
Structures of English and Spanish. Chicago: U. of Chicago Press.

Best wishes,
