Ger de Haan, born in Heerenveen, the Netherlands, in 1944. Ph.D. from Utrecht University. Professor of Frisian Language and Literature at Utrecht University.
Fellow (1 September 1990 – 30 June 1991)
At NIAS I have been a member of the linguistic research group “The acquisition of heads”. My research aimed at the acquisition of verbal categories in early Dutch. I have analyzed new Dutch child utterances against the background of a theory that claims that children start with a grammatical system that deviates from the adult’s.
