Phonological Acquisition Child Language and Constraint-Based Grammar

Heftet / 2015 / Engelsk
In this comprehensive introduction, Anne-Michelle Tessier examines how we acquire the sounds and sound patterns of language. Analyzing child speech patterns and their analogues among adult languages while also teaching the basics of Optimality Theory, this novel textbook will help students develop a broad grammatical understanding of phonological acquisition. Phonological Acquisition provides* evidence to support theory from multiple language families, populations and data collection methods* connections to lexical, morphological and perceptual learning Assuming only a basic knowledge of phonology, this textbook is aimed at students of linguistics, developmental psychology, speech pathology and communication disorders. It will also be of interest to professional psychologists, acquisition researchers, clinicians, and anyone concerned with child speech development.

How do children learn to produce language sound patterns and what errors do they make? Assuming only an undergraduate background in phonology, child speech patterns and their analogues across adult languages are used to discuss Optimality Theory. It also investigated how phonological learning interacts with other aspects of language acquisition.

'Tessier has masterfully mined the now-rich vein of OT-theoretic research to make a major contribution to explanation in children's acquisition of phonology. Her highly accessible and comprehensive volume deserves a place on the book shelves of students and seasoned phonologists alike.' Martha Young-Scholten, Newcastle University, UK "Fantastic either as a stand-alone text for a theory-driven course on phonological acquisition, or as a supplement on both OT and acquisition in a general phonology course. The style is wonderfully engaging, instructive without ever being condescending, casual while still serious." Joe Pater, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, USA
