L1, L2, 2L1 and SLI: a Pilot Study on the Acquisition of German Dative Case Marking

Speaker: Anna-Lena Scherger, Universität Hildesheim

Authors: Anna-Lena Scherger

This study investigated the following research questions analysing different types of language acquisition: a) Are there differences between 2L1 and L2 children in their acquisition of German dative case marking? b) Are there differences between bilingual children and children with SLI in their acquisition of German dative case marking? c) Can dative case marking be identified as a linguistic marker for SLI in German in monolingual and/or bilingual acquisition? Therefore, N=53 children aged 4 and 7 are investigated regarding target-like dative case marking in different contexts. Results show no differences between 2L1 and SLI by age 4. However, by age 7 there are significant differences between 2L1 and SLI on the one hand, but no differences between L2 and SLI on the other. Case marking seems to be a potential linguistic marker for L1 children by ages 4 and 7, but for 2L1 children only by age 7.
