Modeling of linguistic knowledge generally involves the compartmentalization
of grammar into phonological, morphological, lexical, syntactic, semantic,
and pragmatic components. These components are not isolated but interacting
components. It is the resulting interfaces between grammatical components
that forms the main topic of this volume, discussed from the perspective of
L1 acquisition in early childhood and L2 in adulthood, as well as
L1/L2 in late childhood.
The book contains ten contributions by members of the Research Center on
Multilingualism at the University of Hamburg and by other international
scholars, all of them experts on multilingualism.
Several pairs of languages are dealt with, among them Spanish and German,
Mandarin and English, French and German, Italian and German, Turkish and
English, Turkish and German, Dutch and Turkish, as well as Spoken German and
German Sign language. Throughout the volume the central issue is that of
representation at the interface of grammatical components.
