Linguistic LingField(s):   Language Acquisition

Summary:   IN RESPONSE TO MY QUERY A WHILE BACK ABOUT THE LITERATURE ON JAPANESE FIRST
LANGUAGE ACQUISITION, I RECEIVED MANY REQUESTS TO PUBLISH A SUMMARY, BUT
ONLY ONE INFORMATIVE RESPONSE, THAT FROM LYNN SANTELMANN OF THE UNIVERSITY
OF WISCONSIN. SHE OFFERS THE FOLLOWING:

(LYNN SANTELMANN WROTE:)-------------
[T]HE ARTICLE BY PATRICIA CLANCY IN THE SLOBIN VOLUMES ON THE
CROSSLINGUISTIC STUDY OF LANGUAGE ACQUISITION (... V. 1)... GIVES A GENERAL
INTRODUCTION TO THE CHARACTERISTICS OF JAPANESE CHILD LANGUAGE.

YOU MIGHT ALSO CONSIDER POSTING A QUERY TO THE INFO-CHILDES LIST
RUN BY BRIAN MACWHINNEY AT CARNEGIE MELLON. IT'S A LIST SERVE
PRIMARILY FOR CHILD LANGUAGE RESEARCHERS. TO SUBSCRIBE,
SEND AN E-MAIL TO: MACW@CMU.EDU

THERE IS A JAPANESE CORPUS THAT HAS BEEN CONTRIBUTED TO THE
CHILDES SYSTEM BY SUSANNE MIYATA. SO YOU CAN GO TO THE CHILDES
SITE LOOK AT THAT DATA AS WELL - MAKING SURE YOU CITE THE ORIGINAL
RESEARCHER (I THINK SHE ALSO WWANTS TO BE NOTIFIED IF SOMEONE USES
HER DATA, EVEN WITHOUT PUBLISHING.)

- ----------------------------------
I THANK LYNN FOR HER HELP.

TO LYNN'S RESPONSE I CAN ADD:

SANCHES, MARY MILDRED. 1968. FEATURES IN THE ACQUISITION OF JAPANESE
GRAMMAR. (PHD DISSERTATION AVAILABLE FROM UMI DISSERTATION SERVICES.)

THIS IS ALL I HAVE COME UP WITH SO FAR. (I WAS HOPING THAT PERHAPS WORK IN
THIS AREA HAD BEEN DONE IN JAPAN BY JAPANESE RESEARCHERS.) SINCE THIS SEEMS
TO BE A TOPIC OF INTEREST TO A NUMBER OF PEOPLE, I WILL POST ANOTHER SUMMARY
LATER IF I COME UP WITH MORE INFORMATION.

REGARDS,
DAVID LUDDEN
