This page posts discussions about the use of the comparative method in linguistic analysis that began in my book The Comparative Method of Language Acquisition Research (Chicago University Press 2017). The comparative method of linguistic analysis applies the comparative method of historical linguistics to the other branches of linguistics. The comparative method provides a systematic way to compare acquisition data from multiple languages.
