Imperatives in bilingual child Icelandic-English

Bohnacker, Ute LU (2000) In Proceedings of the 24th Annual Boston University Conference on Language Development 1. p.140-150
Abstract
The syntax of imperatives makes an interesting test case when investigating word order, verb raising and cliticisation across languages and their acquisition. This paper looks at language differentiation, i.e. language-specific parameter setting, in the imperative constructions of a bilingual child, "Katla", acquiring a verb-raising language, Icelandic, as well as English, not a verb-raising language.
