“Mommy, what is Antons name?”:: Patterns in English and Swedish first language acquisition of children beyond the two-word stage

Abstract [en]
The focus of this essay is the order in which very young children acquire the different forms of expression, such as negations, statements and wh-questions, the development of how a request is put, the word order in statements, how the child describes ownership and the feelings of other people and the acquisition of articles and of the plural ending. Additionally, I look into the ambiguity of the meaning of the phrase Thank you. I have used my son Erik s the Swedish-speaking subject in a contrastive analysis between Swedish and English children. The aim of the study is to see whether Swedish and English children acquire the same language features at approximately the same age. When having compared the findings elicited from the child acquiring Swedish with the same samples from the English-speaking children, I can conclude that the correspondences between the stages and sequences of acquisition by far outnumber the inconsistencies.
