Development of Negation in Bilingual Spanish/English and Monolingual English Speakers.
Madrid, Dennis; Garcia, Eugene E.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v73 n5 p624-31 Oct 1981
This study offers an analysis of bilingual acquisition with particular emphasis on conditions that required the child to use negative syntactic structures. English monolinguals scored differently than bilinguals in English. There also was evidence that Spanish negative constructions were used in English negative constructions. (Author/BW)
