Abstract [en]

This essay deals with the notions of ‘simplicity’ and ‘complexity’ as well as ‘accommodation’ and ‘transgression’ with respect to child developments in language acquisition and literature acquisition. Focusing on the period of ‘Early Literacy’, it is argued that language development and children’s literature both start with simple patterns and gradually gain complexity. It is shown that children’s literature is a specific input in language acquisition which is accommodated to the needs of children. Both in language acquisition and in literary input, one finds also transgressions of rules.
