Kampen, Jacqueline van 2023 Everything is not equal in adult and child Dutch: The scope of universal quantifiers with negationLinguistics in the Netherlands 2023, Leufkens, Sterre and Marco Bril (eds.), pp. 120–136 | Article
An investigation into the production of universal quantifiers with negation in the CHILDES database of Dutch shows several scopal properties that have not been discussed before. First, it shows a crucial distinction between child and adult Dutch. A universal quantifier with scope over negation… read more
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2023 Dit is Laura-se (trui): The spreading of the possessive se constructionin DutchLinguistics in the Netherlands 2023, Leufkens, Sterre and Marco Bril (eds.), pp. 137–154 | Article
Dutch children temporarily use a possessor se construction with proper/kinship names and pronouns, like dit is Laura-se/opa-se/hem-se jas (‘this is Laura’s/grandpa’s/his coat’). The se possessive is not available in standard Dutch, although examples of it are found on the internet. The se… read more
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2020 Discourse-related V1 declaratives in DutchLinguistics in the Netherlands 2020, Tribushinina, Elena and Mark Dingemanse (eds.), pp. 149–164 | Article
This paper discusses two types of discourse-related V1 declaratives in Dutch. The first type involves a missing argument. In the position before the finite verb a referential 3rd person pronoun is deleted. The deletion of the pronoun is constrained by the recoverability condition, which requires… read more
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2017 Afrikaans directionality switch in ‘triple’ V-clusters with the auxiliary hetLinguistics in the Netherlands 2017, Lestrade, Sander and Bert Le Bruyn (eds.), pp. 77–91 | Article
The general perspective of the paper is that all (dis)harmonic branching orders within the West-Germanic V-clusters imply a different categorization by the acquisition procedure that should be independently motivated. More specific, the paper discusses the directionality switch with the temporal… read more
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2016 Deriving verb-cluster variation in Dutch and GermanLinguistics in the Netherlands 2016, Audring, Jenny and Sander Lestrade (eds.), pp. 54–69 | Article
The difference in West-Germanic V(erb)-clusters, right-branching (Dutch) and left-branching (German), follows from a difference in the acquisition of V-second. The decisive factor is a rightward selection of the <+Aux> verbs in Dutch main clauses. That decisive factor had already been acquired… read more
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2015 Crossover restrictions, A-bar pronouns and discourse antecedentsLinguistics in the Netherlands 2015, Köhnlein, Björn and Jenny Audring (eds.), pp. 88–104 | Article
The difference between weak crossovers and weakest crossovers is usually derived from a distinction between quantifiers and non-quantifiers (Lasnik & Stowell 1991). In this paper I will derive crossover restrictions from a new example set, long movement constructions with Dutch A-bar pronouns.… read more
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2012 Obviation properties of the d-pronoun in DutchLinguistics in the Netherlands 2012, Elenbaas, Marion and Suzanne Aalberse (eds.), pp. 68–81 | Article
The present paper discusses a decisive difference in Dutch between the d(emonstrative)-pronoun and the p(ersonal)-pronoun. The d-pronoun is a grammatical device for focus-to-topic-shift. Van Kampen (2010) derived this from two properties of the d-pronoun , neither of them present in the p-pronoun.… read more
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2010 The learnability of A-bar chainsThe Linguistics Enterprise: From knowledge of language to knowledge in linguistics, Everaert, Martin B.H., Tom Lentz, Hannah N.M. De Mulder, Øystein Nilsen and Arjen Zondervan (eds.), pp. 115–140 | Article
This paper discusses the learnability of long wh-questions. Taking longitudinal data from child Dutch an example, I will show that the acquisition of long wh-movement has been thoroughly prepared in previous acquisition steps. Each step defines a local relation that is preserved in the next… read more
Evers, Arnold Ernest and Jacqueline van Kampen 2008 Parameter setting and input reductionThe Limits of Syntactic Variation, Biberauer, Theresa (ed.), pp. 483–515 | Article
The language acquisition procedure identifies certain properties of the targetgrammar before others. The evidence from the input is processed in a stepwiseorder. Section 1 equates that order and its typical effects with an order ofparameter setting. The question is how the acquisition procedure… read more
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2007 Relative agreement in DutchLinguistics in the Netherlands 2007, Los, Bettelou and Marjo van Koppen (eds.), pp. 112–124 | Article
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2006 The acquisition of the standard EPP in Dutch and FrenchStudies on Agreement, Costa, João and Maria Cristina Figueiredo Silva (eds.), pp. 99–119 | Article
Kampen, Jacqueline van 2006 Early operators and late topic-drop/pro-dropThe Acquisition of Syntax in Romance Languages, Torrens, Vincent and Linda Escobar (eds.), pp. 203–223 | Article
This paper compares two reduction principles in child language, Tense/Agreement Omission (Schütze 1997;Wexler 1998) and Root Peripheral Truncation (Rizzi 1994, 2001). The paper argues that the empirical content of these proposals as well as their partial overlap follows from an inherent hierarchy… read more
