In two longitudinal studies, the influence of home language and outside home exposure on the early acquisition of vocabulary and morphosyntax was investigated. The results presented in this dissertation showed that home language played an important role in the Frisian measures and, to a lesser extent, in Dutch. Outside home exposure had a strong influence on receptive vocabulary in both languages. Therefore, it can be concluded that the acquisition of the minority language, Frisian, does not harm the acquisition of the majority language, Dutch.
