Against the background of the proliferation of the various subdisciplines of language acquisition research over the past decades, this volume aims to enhance the existing but somewhat fragile links between language acquisition and theoretical linguistics. With regard to previous research, the book focuses on the acquisition of syntax and syntactic theory, specifically on Chomskyan Generative Grammar.
