Brown & Hanlon Revisisted: Mother's Sensitivity to Ungrammatical Forms.
Hirsh-Pasek, Kathy; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v11 n1 p81-88 Feb 1984
Expands on study by Brown and Hanlon which showed that parents seemed more attuned to semantic value of their child's speech rather than grammatical form. However, this more recent study suggests that language learning environment presents subtle cues, distinguishing between well-formed and ill-formed sentences, evidenced by mothers' inclinations to repeat ungrammatical rather than grammatical sentences generated by two-year-old subjects.
