Reviews

"[The authors'] challenging and fruitful questioning and their innovation in methodologies will be much more valuable for the future of the field than most of the empty theoretical fabrications that are so common in developmental psycholinguistics." Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography "Their [the authors'] challenging and fruitful questioning and their innovation in methodologies will be much more valuable for the future of the field than most of the empty theoretical fabrications that are so common in developmental psycholinguistics." Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography "The major contribution certainly, is the enormous body of data and the intensity of the analysis. The eventual outcome is the elucidation of mechanisms for language learning that turn out to be complex and constantly changing, but in any case, not describable by the 'vertical' categories of syntax and semantics. The book is an important addition to the research literature on language acquisition..." Journal of the American Speech and Hearing Association
