Examines the production of the grammatical morphemes studied by Brown and his colleagues in free speech samples form a cohort of 4-year-olds with a history of slow expressive language development (SELD) and a control group of normal speakers. Results; Comparisons; Implications for the study of SELD.

- THE DEVELOPMENT OF ENGLISH MORPHOLOGY : AN ACQUISITION MODEL. Ivimey, G. P. // Language & Speech;Apr-Jun75, Vol. 18 Issue 2, p120
Studies the formation and use of morphological rules in English school children. Correlation between the rate and order of acquisition and the characteristics of the adult language models to which they are exposed; Frequency of occurrence of forms.
- Acquisition of adjectival degree markers by Dutch- and Russian-speaking children. Tribushinina, Elena // Linguistics in the Netherlands;2015, Vol. 32 Issue 1, p155
Prior research shows that morphological richness facilitates acquisition and that paradigm size is more important than uniqueness of form-function pairings (uniformity). The present paper takes a novel approach to uniformity, not restricted to inflectional morphology, and aims to establish...
- Morphological deficits of children with SLI: Evaluation of number marking and agreement. Rice, Mabel L.; Oetting, Janna B. // Journal of Speech & Hearing Research;Dec93, Vol. 36 Issue 6, p1249
Evaluates three accounts of the grammatical deficits of children with specific language impairment (SLI) by examining children with SLI and language-matched non-SLI children's acquisition of number marking and number agreement. Missing feature; Surface account; Missing agreement; Data; Two...
- Inflectional diagrammaticity in Polish: A case study of Polish children. Konieczna, Ewa // Word Structure;Apr2011, Vol. 4 Issue 1, p20
This paper constitutes an attempt to describe the early stages of morphological development of three Polish children on the basis of the language corpus collected in the form of parental diaries and audio recordings in the course of three-year-long longitudinal studies. The onset of...
- The effect of infelicity on childrenâ€™s sensitivity to Weak Crossover: Evidence from Dutch and English. van der Ziel, Marie-Elise; Philip, William // Linguistics in the Netherlands;2009, Vol. 26 Issue 1, p127
The article discusses the Weak Crossover (WCO) Constraint and first language acquisition (L1A) theory in English and Dutch children in the Netherlands. It notes that children should possess knowledge of the WCO-constraint once they have correctly determined the grammatical morphemes in the...
- MORFOLOÅ KE POGREÅ KE U UZORCIMA GOVORNOG JEZIKA DJECE UREDNOG JEZIÄŒNOG RAZVOJA I DJECE S POSEBNIM JEZIÄŒNIM TEÅ KOÄ†AMA. HRŽICA, GORDANA; LICE, KAROLINA // Croatian Review of Rehabilitation Research / Hrvatska Revija za ;2013, Vol. 49 Issue 1, p65
In languages with rich morphological system the acquisition of morphology is complex and time-consuming process. Morphological errors reveal the strategies speakers make during the acquisitional process. Number and type of errors provide the information of the level of acquisition of...
- TEMPORAL DEIXIS IN EARLY CHILD ROMANIAN. Stoicescu, Ioana // Bucharest Working Papers in Linguistics;2012, Vol. 14 Issue 1, p133
This paper investigates the contrastive use of tense-aspect inflections in early child Romanian. It focuses on the use of the prezent, perfect compus and the periphrastic future morphologies. It finds evidence of the ability to inflect a significant number of the verbs in all the tenses...
