English Language Acquisition

 One of the websites debates English language acquisition:

The CLESS project is investigating children's acquisition of English using spontaneous production data collected from children in the United States. In our work thus far we have concentrated on children's knowledge of morphological compounding, and their knowledge of complex predicates such as verb-particle constructions, double-object datives, and goal-phrase constructions. In addition, we are examining the acquisition of negation, verbal inflection, preposition stranding, prepositional complementizers, and wh-questions.
