The present volume contains selected papers from the conference on the acquisition of verb grammar and verb arguments held at the Research Center for General Linguistics (ZAS), Berlin in November, 2001. The main aim of this conference was to provide a forum for researchers studying the (language-specific) acquisition of verbs and aspects of their grammar, such as inflection, finiteness, argument structure, etc. Of particular interest were the developmental processes at the interface of related components of verb grammar, such as lexicon and morphology, semantics and syntax, etc. Elucidating these issues should enhance our understanding of the development of particular verbal systems and of specific languages impact on this development.
