Abstract

In this paper, I present my research on verb acquisition of a bilingual Russian- English child. I apply grammatical profiles to determine the level of acquisition of the child, noticing that grammatical profiles are different for spoken and written language. I show that the bilingual child I examined has acquired the Russian verb system completely, but still makes some mistakes in verb formation.
