Pragmatic Development by Anat Ninio

Book Description

The pragmatic system consists of the rules for appropriate and communicatively effective language use. Pragmatic Development provides an integrated view of the acquisition of all the various pragmatic subsystems, including expression of communicative intents, participation in conversation, and production of extended discourse.For the first time, the three components of the pragmatic system are presented in a way that makes clear how they relate to each other and why they all fall under the rubric pragmatics. Ninio and Snow combine their own extensive work in these three domains with an overview of the field of pragmatic development, making clear how linguistic pragmatics relates to other aspects of language development, to social development, and to becoming a member of one's culture. This book is bound to be a valuable text for advanced courses in language acquisition as well as useful supplementary reading for an introductory course.

Syntactic Development, Its Input and Output by Anat Ninio Syntactic Development, Its Input and Output, Hardback (March 2011)

This important new book places the syntactic learning process under close scrutiny. Its focus is on the characteristics of linguistic input and the resultant output, which, it suggests, do not follow the orderly uniform processes assumed by some versions of formalistic linguistic theory.

Language and the Learning Curve by Anat Ninio Language and the Learning Curve, Paperback (November 2006)

In Language and the Learning Curve, a leading researcher in the field offers a radical new view of language development, unusual in its combination of Chomskian linguistics and learning theory. Stimulating and accessible, it is an important new work that challenges many of our usual assumptions about syntactic development.
