Content

his course will discuss various aspects of child language acquisition. Among other questions, for example, we will study the semantic characteristics of children's first words, compare the differences between monolingual and bilingual child language acquisition. In addition, we will look at the way specific language impairment interferes with the development of language skills in children. To make these discussions more applied, we will try to find proof for the theoretical papers discussed in class in the ChiLDES corpus which is a freely accessible corpus of child language.
