- Early verb development in one Austrian child (2000)
- The purpose of this paper is to trace the early development of verbs (first 50 verb lemmas) in one Austrian child. The paper focusses on verb morphology, and especially on the emergence of first verb paradigms.
- Early Verb Development in one Croatian-speaking Child (2000)
- This paper shows the early development of the first approximately 50 verbs found in the recorded speech production of one Croatian girl. The aim is to analyse and interpret the child's verb development in terms of the distinction of a pre- and a protomorphological phase before modularised morphology in language acquisition (Dressler & Karpf 1995). Furthermore, focus will be laid on the emergence of first verb paradigms.
- Early verb development in one Russian-speaking child (2000)
- This paper investigates the development of verbal inflection in the early stages of the acquisition of Russian. Data from tape recordings and a diary were used for this study.
- Early verb development of two finnish-speaking children : a preliminary approach to miniparadigms (2000)
- This paper is a preliminary overview of the early acquisition of verb inflection in Finnish. The analysis of the first verb forms concentrates on two children, but background material from other children is also used. The analysis of the first miniparadigms concentrates on one girl (Tuulikki).
- Early verb inflection in Lithuanian (2000)
- The source of the data used in this paper are recordings of conversations with a Lithuanian girl, Rūta. Rūta lives in Vilnius and is the only child in the family. Both parents speak standard Lithuanian without dialectal influences. The recordings were taken on a free basis without a fixed schedule, then transcribed by the mother of the child, double-checked and coded in accordance with CHILDES by the author of the paper. At the moment of writing this contribution the data taken between 1;7-2;5 have been fully processed. Over this period about 34.5 hours of recordings were collected.
- First Tentative Conclusions on the early development of verb morphology (2000)
- In these conclusions we can deal only with some of the tentative comparative results of the workshop papers on the early development of verb morphology. The main focus is on criteria of how the child detects morphology and how this emerging morphological competence develops in its earliest phases. In view of the purpose and tentative character of these conclusions, all references will be limited to the papers of the workshop and to earlier studies by workshop participants within the "Crosslinguistic Project on Pre- and Protomorphology in Language Acquisition". Much more will be given in the projected final publication.
