Synopsis

This book contains 51 chapters based on papers presented at the GALA (Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition) conference held in Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2011. It thus reflects the GALA 2011 scientific presentations and discussions and raises issues that are currently at the centre of language acquisition research. Such issues examined in this volume include first and second language acquisition and processing by children and adults; language acquisition by individuals with linguistic and/or cognitive impairment; and cross-linguistic comparisons in (a)typical language acquisition. As such, Advances in Language Acquisition constitutes a valuable reference guide for current work on the interdisciplinary research field of language acquisition.

Stavroula Stavrakaki is an Assistant Professor of Linguistics-Neurolinguistics at the University of Thessaloniki. She has published papers in many international journals including the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology, Aphasiology, Brain and Language, and the British Journal of Developmental Psychology. Her current research focuses on developmental and acquired language disorders. Marina Lalioti is an MA student in Linguistics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki who is currently working on Specific Language Impairment. Polyxeni Konstantinopoulou is a PhD student in Neurolinguistics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Her thesis focuses on language abilities of children with focal brain damage.
