Hoe jong Afrikaanssprekende kinders betekenis aan hul vroeë taalgebruik verbind
MetadataShow full item record
The acquisition of a first language can be described as becoming proficient in the phonology, morphology, lexicon, syntax and semantics (and pragmatics) of a language, as well as mastering the underlying abstract rules associated with these grammatical levels. Seeing that each child should master a form of each of these elements, one can assume that language typological factors will be involved in the process. However, some of these aspects will be language specific seeing that languages differ with regard to grammar and context specific factors. Language specific studies on first language acquisition that employ language typological factors are therefore necessary to explore this field of study.
