    Abstract

    This paper reports on a work-in-progress analysis of lexical and syntactic development by one Japanese-English bilingual child. The focus of this paper is the child's development of Japanese, particularly the relationship between the types of verbs the child acquires and the argument structure, and the semantic function of the arguments. The analysis for this study is based on the data obtained from a bilingual child who was raised in two typologically different languages, English and Japanese, covering three years of her life from the time she was 1;11 (one year and 11 months old) until 4;10.
