What's the Use of Imitation?
Clark, Ruth
Journal of Child Language, 4, 3, 341-58, Oct 77
This paper reviews evidence for and against imitation as a factor in the acquisition of syntax. It is concluded that the effects of imitation of children's speech are too pervasive to be dismissed as irrelevant. An important question is how a child extracts grammatical information from imitated sequences. (CHK)
