Short description of contents:
This research targets noun-noun combinations (NNC) produced by children in the two-word stage of language acquisition. Contra previous studies arguing for a pragmatic/semantic analysis of these constructions, we argue that Italian children employ two different strategies for merging symmetric NPs and that both strategies conform to antisymmetric requirements on syntactic structures.
