ABSTRACT
The sentence production capabilities of young children undergo major changes during the same period in which grammar develops. This article reports data from a cross-sectional sample of 52 children between the ages of 1;10 (years; months) and 4;0, and looks specifically at the dichotomy between stalls, sentence disruptions that are the result of glitches in sentence production, and revisions, sentence disruptions that involve self-monitoring and the rapid replacement of words or morphosyntactic alternatives. It was found that revision rate increased with level of grammatical development, but that stall rate was not related to grammatical development. These results indicate that children's capacities for self-monitoring and maintenance of multiple linguistic alternatives increase during the period of grammatical development.
