Contributions to this journal offer explanatory insights into, and advance our knowledge of, how language is acquired. Focusing primarily on experimental, linguistic, and computational approaches, the journal discusses the syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and phonology of language acquisition--merging the data of developmental psycholinguistics with recent discoveries in linguistic theory to yield a more adequate understanding of the growth of language. Coverage includes in-principle solutions to problems of how children select among possible grammars, discussions of relevant acquisition data, integrations of theoretical representations of languages to be acquired, and perspectives derived from second language acquisition, language impaired speakers, and other domains of cognition. Language Acquisition also discusses such topics as the relationship between disorders and acquisition, and studies of theoretical linguistics.
