DISTINCTIVE FEATURES IN THE PLURALIZATION RULES OF ENGLISH SPEAKERS.
ANISFELD, MOSHE; AND OTHERS
FIRST AND SECOND GRADERS, GIVEN "CVC" SINGULAR NONSENSE WORDS (E.G., NAR) ORALLY AND ASKED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN TWO PLURALS (NARF-NARK), PREFERRED FINAL SOUNDS SHARING WITH /Z/ (THE MOST COMMON SHAPE OF THE PLURAL MORPHEME IN ENGLISH) THE STRIDENCY OR CONTINUANCE FEATURES. THIS SUGGESTS THAT THEIR PLURALIZATION RULES ARE FORMULATED IN TERMS OF DISTINCTIVE FEATURES RATHER THAN SOUND SEGMENTS. KINDERGARTEN CHILDREN AND ADULTS SHOWED NO SUCH PREFERENCES. THE SUBSTANCE OF THIS PAPER WAS GIVEN BY CO-AUTHOR JUDITH BARLOW AT THE ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE EASTERN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION HELD IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, APRIL 6-8, 1967 AND BY MOSHE ANISFELD AT A PROJECT LITERACY CONFERENCE HELD IN CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, MAY 25-26, 1967.
