8. Diminutives and hypocoristics in Austrian German (AG)
This paper intends to show how diminutives emerge in the corpus of two children who acquire a language which has productive diminutive formation, but where diminutives play a minor role due to low frequency; they do not serve as triggers or facilitators in the acquisition of German noun morphology. In addition, we will look into input-dependent inter-individual variation.
