Course Description: This course familiarizes students with current issues in research on child language-development. In the first half of the class, students study phenomena in child language in which claims from linguistic theory and cognitive science have been tested. The phenomena are based on both natural and experimentally obtained data. At the same time, the topics addressed are used to train the students to raise new questions and hypotheses, and to set up experiments where these hypotheses can be tested. In the second half of the class, students are presented with a case study in the acquisition of sentence meaning. This is connected to a research program directed by the instructor that focuses on the relative contribution of linguistic competence and performance in children and adults.
