Child Language Project
► The Child Language Project involves a longitudinal study of the phonological and morphological development of three Hebrew-acquiring children, two typically developing and one with mild PDD. The children were recorded on a weekly basis, from the first year up to the age of 3 for the typically developing children and 4 for the atypically developing one. ► The project is headed by Outi Bat-El and Galit Adam and was partially supported by ISF grant #554/04. ► The list below provides the fruits of this project (marked with *), including the articles in BAALL's special issue on Hebrew phonology and morphology. Other studies on the acquisition of Hebrew phonology, all conducted by people associated with the Department of Linguistics at Tel-Aviv University are included.
