Stadt, Rosalinde, Aafke Hulk and Petra Sleeman 2018 The influence of L2 English on L3 French acquisition in bilingual educationCLIL and Bilingual Education in the Netherlands, Mearns, Tessa and Rick de Graaff (eds.), pp. 227–245 | Article
In the present paper, we compare L2 English influence on French third language acquisition (L3A) in first-year and third-year bilingual stream secondary school students and in third-year mainstream secondary school students by means of a gap-filling task. We found that the influence of L2… read more
In this study, we test the L2 Status Factor hypothesis (Bardel & Falk, 2007, 2012), which claims that the L2 is the preferred background language over the L1 in L3 acquisition (henceforth L3A), and we investigate the effect of L2 English exposure on the role of the L1 and the L2 in L3A. We examine… read more

Child, Paz González, Antje Muntendam and M. Carmen Parafita Couto (eds.), pp. 67–92 | Chapter
This study investigates Spanish heritage speakers in the Netherlands on their judgments of Spanish mood in a syntactic context and in two interface contexts: the internal interface between syntax and semantics and the external interface between syntax and pragmatics. The strong version of the… read more

In this paper, we test the L2 Status Factor (Bardel & Falk, 2007) by examining to what extent Dutch secondary school students (13–15 years) prefer L2 English over L1 Dutch in L3 French acquisition, and we study the influence of L2 education by comparing an English immersion curriculum vs. a… read more
Osch, Brechje van, Aafke Hulk, Petra Sleeman and Pablo Irizarri van Suchtelen 2014 Gender agreement in interface contexts in the oral production of heritage speakers of Spanish in the NetherlandsLinguistics in the Netherlands 2014, Auer, Anita and Björn Köhnlein (eds.), pp. 93–106 | Article
In this paper we present an analysis of Spanish heritage speakers’ oral production of gender agreement outside the DP as an innovative source of support for the Interface Hypothesis (Sorace & Filiaci 2006). We demonstrate that, besides commonly known factors such as the gender, animacy and… read more
Aacquisition of the grammatical gender of the Dutch definite common determiner de and neuter het is a long-lasting process since monolingual children do not acquire a target grammar with respect to the use of het until the age of six. Before that age, they overuse de. Bilingual child acquirers from… read more
Sleeman, Petra and Aafke Hulk 2013 L1 acquisition of noun ellipsis in French and in Dutch: Consequences for linguistic theoryRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 2011: Selected papers from 'Going Romance' Utrecht 2011, Baauw, Sergio, Frank Drijkoningen, Luisa Meroni and Manuela Pinto (eds.), pp. 249–266 | Article
In the literature several theoretical analyses of nominal ellipsis of various languages have been proposed. In this exploratory and comparative study the L1 French and Dutch acquisition of noun ellipsis is analyzed. The L1 data suggest that a theoretical analysis of the licensing mechanisms of… read more
Keij, Brigitta, Leonie Cornips, Roeland van Hout, Aafke Hulk and Joanne van Emmerik 2012  Knowing versus producing: The acquisition of grammatical gender and the definite determiner in Dutch by L1-TD, L1-SLI, and eL2 childrenLinguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 2:4, pp. 379–403 | Article
Dutch nouns are divided into two groups according to grammatical gender which is, among others, marked on the definite determiner: common nouns take the definite determiner de and neuter nouns take the definite determiner het. This study is unique in systematically investigating the acquisition of… read more

Previous research revealed that monolingual children between 11- and 13-yearold show a target-like production with respect to gender assignment of definite determiners whereas this is not the case for bilingual children who massively overgeneralize de. In order to further investigate this… read more

Serratrice et al. (2004) propose to extend Hulk & Müller’s (2000, 2001) hypothesis on cross-linguistic influence in early child bilingualism to include cases of influence after instantiation of the C-system (i.e. at a later stage of development). In the present article, we explore whether such an… read more

In this paper, we investigate the development of dislocation structures in three French-Dutch bilingual children. Dislocations are a syntactic means of marking the element that is the topic of an utterance. As such, they constitute the interface between syntax and pragmatics, a domain that has been… read more

Linden, Elisabeth van der en Aafke Hulk 2000 Ik Deux Jambes: Variatie in de Taal van Tweetalige KinderenOnderzoek ontmoet onderwijs, pp. 137–144 | Article
In this paper, we argue that variation in child bilingualism has received too little attention. The literature on monolingual acquisition shows that children vary in the routes they follow towards linguistic proficiency: children have preferences for the acquisition of certain word classes (Nelson… read more
Cornips, Leonie and Aafke Hulk 1998 Affected Objects in Heerlen Dutch and RomanceLanguages in Contrast 1:2, pp. 191–210 | Article
In this paper we show that the well known definition of affected object — as an object that is somehow altered or modified by the action expressed by the verb — is problematic with respect to middle formation, which has been claimed in the literature to be possible only with affected objects. The… read more

Child bilingualism has been a domain of growing interest in the last few years. A central question in research concerns the differentiation of the two languages in the developmen-tal process: do children develop two separate language systems from the very beginning or do they start with a combined… read more
