How Children Understand Full, Truncated, and Anomalous Passives
Maratsos, Michael P.; Abramovitch, Rona
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 14, 2, 145-157, Apr 75
Five experiments are carried out to determine the comprehension of passives by children. Results obtained demonstrate that comprehension rests on knowledge of syntactic structure. V - NP were interpreted as verb-object. Passives lacking a preposition were interpreted as actives. Competence in passives may be at a high level before performance is displayed. (SC)
