Abstract

Methods for assessing children's syntax is an invaluable contribution to the study of child syntax. As the editors note in their preface, the volume has two major aims. First, it is designed in part to function as a how-to manual to aid students and researchers in the selection and use of methods for investigating children's linguistic performance and competence. Second, it is intended to serve as a valuable resource for the evaluation of research in the area of child language acquisition. The volume, which includes contributions by some of the most prominent scholars in the field, succeeds admirably in fulfilling both of the above goals.
