Once upon a time there was a little girl; a dreamer, storyteller, and wolf freak. One day she grew up. She became a writer. She became an artist. And she was me. Welcome to the world of my childhood fantasy. Step through a doorway opened long ago by C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jack London, and countless others. Meet characters long gone or so changed by now you may not recognize them. Learn the origins of my stories, and maybe you, too, will take the writer's journey. If so, you'll be in good company
This book presents a study of the development of time reference in young children acquiring Inuktitut as a first language. The first such study of an Eskimo-Aleut language, its account of children's development of time reference in a system that is fundamentally different from those found in languages previously studied makes a unique contribution to the literature on the acquisition of tense and aspect. Drawing on longitudinal spontaneous speech data from eight Inuit children between 2 and 3-and-a-half years old, this study analyzes the temporal structures, their meanings and context of use in children's communicative interactions-with siblings, peers and caretakers during the early stages of language development. The comprehensive study of previously unexplored temporal phenomena and its unprecedented findings makes this book an important resource for researchers, teachers and students of child language development, especially the development of time reference. In addition, the documentation of the Inuktitut temporal system, especially as used in conversational speech, will be of interest to researchers of time refer.
