Kuczaj, Stan A., II
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 16, 5, 589-600, Oct 77
Spontaneous speech samples of 15 children were analyzed for appropriate and inappropriate use and nonuse of the past tense verbal inflection. It was found that: (1) two types of overgeneralization errors have acquisitional relevance; and (2) partial regularity blocks overgeneralization errors. Two hypotheses were not supported. (CHK)
