Abstract:

This volume presents sixteen new articles on the acquisition of Romancelanguages by both well-established researchers and vital new contributors to thefield. Under a generative umbrella, the articles in this collection investigate theacquisition of French, Romanian, Spanish, Catalan, Italian and Portugueseacross different contexts including first language acquisition, bilingualacquisition, specifically impaired first language acquisition, child L2 acquisition,second language acquisition, as well as first language attrition. This volumeadvances our understanding of how languages are acquired and how the studyof Romance languages contributes to clarifying challenging open questions onthe acquisition of key functional categories and other related phenomena. Inparticular, the articles included assess complexity as a relevant factor shapingchildren's acquisition of syntactic and phonological structures, they refinecrucial theoretical constructs such as parameter setting and language transfer,and propose language change as another crucial factor affecting the process oflanguage acquisition and attrition.
