Description: The research published in Language Acquisition makes a clear contribution to linguistic theory by increasing our understanding of how language is acquired. The journal focuses on the acquisition of syntax, semantics, phonology, and morphology, and considers theoretical, experimental, and computational perspectives.
Coverage includes solutions to the logical problem of language acquisition, as it arises for particular grammatical proposals; discussion of acquisition data relevant to current linguistic questions; and perspectives derived from theory-driven studies of second language acquisition, language-impaired speakers, and other domains of cognition.
In addition to brief and full-length research articles, the editors invite authors of recent dissertations on language acquisition to submit a synopsis for publication in Language Acquisition.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.
