Oral presentation

The acquisition of recursive locative PPs and subject relative clauses by Romanian-Hungarian bilingual children - the view from comprehension

Speaker: Anca Sevcenco, Universitate din București

Authors: Sevcenco, Anca, Avram, Larisa, Tomescu, Veronica

It has been shown that language specific cues play a facilitating part in the acquisition of recursive structures in child language (Sevcenco et al. to appear, Sevcenco & Avram 2016). The data that support this view come mainly from studies with monolingual participants, with few exceptions (Limbach & Adone 2010 on possessive structures in L2 English, Nelson 2016 on recursive PPs in L2 Spanish). Our currently in progress study investigates whether Romanian-Hungarian bilingual speakers make use of overt languages specific cues in the acquisition of Romanian recursive locative PPs and subject relative clauses on a par with their monolingual peers (Sevcenco & Avram 2016) or whether the syntactic differences in the domain of PP and relative clause modification between Hungarian and Romanian interfere with the use of these cues. The results obtained indicate that there are no substantial differences in the comprehension of recursion between monolingual and bilingual child speakers.
