Examination of parental responses to their young children's (N=3) inflectional over-regularizations and wh-question auxiliary-verb omission errors suggested that two of the children's parents followed ill-formed utterances with expansions and clarification questions. Such corrective responses dropped out of children's input as they continued to make overgeneralization errors. (Author/CB)
