Περίληψη The present study investigates the acquisition of sequential temporal connectives and adverbs in Modern Greek. Specifically, it concentrates on connectives ‘prin’ (before) and ‘afu’ (after) as well as adverbs ‘prota’ (first) and ‘meta’ (then). There is extensive literature on the acquisition of English equivalent temporal connectives but in Modern Greek studies are limited and incomplete. This study focuses exclusively on sequential temporal connectives and it is innovating that it aims to clarify whether there is correlation in the development of relevant temporal connectives and adverbs. Research questions regard primary to the order of acquisition of connectives and adverbs as well as the age at which acquisition is completed. As mentioned before, another goal of the study is to reveal whether there is correlation in acquisition of connectives and adverbs that form semantic pairs: ‘prin’-‘ prota’ and ‘afu’- ‘meta’. Moreover, a few questions about other factors that influence comprehension of sentences containing ‘prin’ and ‘afu’ are addressed. Previous studies observed that chronological sentences are easier in process than reverse and that children apply non linguistic strategies in order to cope with tasks when they lack linguistic knowledge. This study attempts to make clear whether these conclusions are verified for Modern Greek as well. An experimental research (in the spirit of Blything 2016) was conducted so as to give specific answers in the questions addressed above. A total of 51 monolingual children between 3-6 years old participated in a picture selection task. Children were divided into 3 groups depending on their age (Group A (N=15): 3;0-4;0 years old, Group B (N=19): 4;0-5;0 years old, Group C (N=17): 5;0-6;0 years old). Participants were tested in sentences containing ‘prin’, ‘afu’, ‘prota’ and ‘meta’ in six different conditions. Children had to point to the correct picture based on the question that each time the experimenter asked. Performance in the task would reveal to what extent each age group comprehends temporal connectives and adverbs and how gradually children improve until they finally acquire them. The present thesis negotiates the issue under investigation in three chapters. Chapter 1 refers to the theoretical background. Previous literature and other relevant aspects of the issue are extensively presented. Chapter 2 includes a detailed analysis of the study and the results that were extracted. The last chapter (Chapter 3) further discusses results and gives answers to initial research questions.
