Abstract and Keywords

Children's comprehension and production of (mainly noun + noun) compound constructions have been the subject of substantial research over the past twenty years or so. This chapter looks at the acquisition of compounds, primarily in English and Hebrew, from the perspectives both of naturalistic and experimental data. It considers the extent to which the age and sequence of acquisition of compounds might be a matter of typological differences in languages.

Keywords: compounds, English, Hebrew, language acquisition
