Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate whether code-mixing can help us understand the architecture of the (Bilingual) Language Faculty, by comparing the predictions about mixed DPs made by the Bi-Lexical Model (MacSwan 1999) and the Distributed Morphology (Halle & Marantz 1994). The empirical basis consists of the naturalist data of two bilingual children acquiring Italian/German and Italian/Spanish¸ since birth. The data shows an interesting asymmetry in the frequency of the types of mixed agreement with the determiners of the two languages.
