By Veronika Jansen

< !doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">

Die vorliegende Monographie befasst sich mit dem frühkindlichen Erwerb der Dislokation im Französischen und Deutschen. Im Mittelpunkt der empirischen Untersuchung stehen das Auftreten und die Entwicklung von Dislokationsstrukturen im simultan-bilingualen Erstspracherwerb und die damit verbundene Frage, ob dieser grammatische Bereich anfällig für Spracheneinfluss ist. Die Datenanalyse bringt das Ergebnis hervor, dass ein solcher Einfluss sowohl in quantitativer als auch in qualitativer Hinsicht ausbleibt, und diskutiert mögliche Gründe hierfür.

Neben der examine nominaler, resumptiv wiederaufgenommener Dislokationen stellen prä- und postverbale, nicht resumptiv aufgenommene Subjekte im frühkindlichen Französischen einen zweiten Forschungsschwerpunkt der Dissertation dar, für welche in der Literatur mitunter eine Dislokationsanalyse vorgeschlagen wird. Die Studie liefert Evidenz dafür, dass postverbale Subjekte tatsächlich disloziierte Elemente in der Satzperipherie darstellen, wohingegen in Bezug auf nicht-klitische präverbale Subjekte keine eindeutige Schlussfolgerung gezogen werden kann.
