Blurb/Shorttext:
This book is the published version of the author's doctoral dissertation. It is an attempt at revealing only a small part of the problem of the fascinating problem of how children acquire their first language. The focus is on the use of tense and aspect on the one hand, and of connectors on the other, for the purpose of constructing a coherent and cohesive narrative,showing, where possible, how and why Romanian children differ from other children acquiring other mother tongues. The study is based on a corpus of 47 narratives elicited from Romanian monolingual subjects of different age groups, all stories being constructed on the basis of the same picture book with no written text. The data thus gathered were analyzed with the aim of tracing a developmental path from one age to another both with respect to the macro-linguistic (knowledge of narrative organization) and to the micro-linguistic knowledge (i.e. knowledge of the two domains of grammar mentioned above). This area of investigation represents only a minor contribution to the uncovering of the discourse processes involved in the ‘making’ of the child’s grammar.
