Observing and describing young children's language learning is a fascinating project. In this introductory course we will explore central issues in child first language learning, including bilingual acquisition. We will draw on crosslinguistic studies and survey differing theoretical positions in discussing how children develop the skills to engage in meaningful communication - how they learn phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics.
