In this groundbreaking book, Michael Tomasello presents a comprehensive usage-based theory of language acquisition. Drawing together a vast body of empirical research in cognitive science, linguistics, and developmental psychology, Tomasello demonstrates that we don't need a self-contained 'language instinct' to explain how children learn language. to-dative constructions (give the book to library/give the library the book), while excluding negative exceptions (donate the book to the library/donate the library the book). Our solution for first language acquisition is based on The Tolerance Principle, a formal model that detects productivity from.
First language acquisition—the study of how children acquire their first language(s)—is the branch of psycholinguistics that deals with the process of acquisition. and, to a lesser extent, their increasing mastery of syntactic constructions. While early diary studies considered children’s language in relation to perceptual, cognitive.

The Acquisition of Constructions is the culmination of new research into constructions of grammar in languages as diverse as Cantonese, English, French, German, Mandarin, Thai, and Tzeltal.
The contributors, all noted scholars in the field of construction grammar, investigate the acquisition of constructions—that is, the consistent patterns for combining words and phrases. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: ix, pages: illustrations ; 24 cm.

This book investigates the nature of generalization in language and examines how language is known by adults and acquired by children. It looks at how and why constructions are learned, the relation between their forms and functions, and how cross-linguistic and language-internal generalizations about them can be by: In this groundbreaking book, Tomasello presents a comprehensive usage-based theory of language acquisition.

“Constructing a Language is the best book on language development since Roger Brown's A First Language. Tomasello has taken full advantage of the research that has been done in the thirty years since Brown's landmark book, to give us a full account of language acquisition, from the first signs of intentional communication in prespeech through the most complex syntactic /5(8).
acquisition of English dative constructions supporting UG. Moon () and Lee () examined the acquisition of English dative constructions by Korean L2 learners whose L1 has both PD and DOD. They also found that PD is acquired earlier than DOD and suggested the availability of UG in L2 Size: 1MB.
Drawing on work in linguistics, language acquisition, and computer science, Adele E. Goldberg proposes that grammatical constructions play a central role in the relation between the form and meaning of simple sentences. She demonstrates that the syntactic patterns associated with simple sentences are imbued with meaning—that the constructions themselves carry meaning 5/5(1).
The phenomena investigated were the acquisition by native speakers of Hindi, Japanese, and Korean of two areas of English: in phonology, the mastery. Children's comprehension and production of (mainly noun + noun) compound constructions have been the subject of substantial research over the past twenty years or so.
This chapter looks at the acquisition of compounds, primarily in English and Hebrew, from the perspectives both of naturalistic and experimental data. It considers the extent to which the age and sequence of Cited by: 9.

This book investigates the nature of generalization in language and examines how language is known by adults and acquired by children.
It looks at how and why constructions are learned, the relation between their forms and functions, and how cross-linguistic and language-internal generalizations about them can be explained. V-Particle-NP constructions and to-datives depend on the combination of the first property with a second property.

This chapter analyzes first language acquisition in the context of Construction Grammar. It provides an overview of usage-based research in first language acquisition that is based on assumptions of Construction Grammar and considers some basic assumptions of Construction Grammar that underlie the usage-based approach to first language by: The chapters included in this volume discuss the following issues: (a) How sign language classifiers differ from spoken languages, (b) cross-linguistic variation in sign language classifier systems, (c) the role of gesture, (d) the nature of morpho-syntactic and phonological constraints on classifier constructions, (e) the grammaticization.

Because these characteristics are among those that arguably facilitate the learning and processing of constructions, the following chapters examine native and non-native speakers’ knowledge, processing, and acquisition of VACs, and seek to determine ‘whether speakers are sensitive to the statistics of usage’ (p.

The two types can be treated di fferently on the basis that to is a goal-oriented preposition, whereas for is a benefacti ve-oriented preposition (Levin, ).
This paper presents a psycholinguistic analysis of constructions and their acquisition. It investigates effects upon naturalistic second language acquisition of type/token distributions in the islands comprising the linguistic form of English verb-argument constructions (VACs: VL verb locative, VOL verb object locative, VOO ditransitive) in the ESF corpus (Perdue, ).Cited by: Her books include Psychology and Language (with H.

The goal of this paper is to prove the role of L1-transfer based on language typology. By analyzing corpus data of eight children from KELC (KNU English Learner Corpus, ), it was found that Korean EFL learners acquire PD .
