School-Age Children's Metalinguistic Awareness of Grammaticality in Verb Form.
Sutter, Judith C.; Johnson, Cynthia J.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v33 n1 p84-95 Mar 1990
The study investigated the ability of 60 children, age 6-8, to monitor grammaticality in the past progressive, perfect progressive, and perfect verb forms. Children achieved a significantly higher rate of accurate judgments monitoring grammatical forms than ungrammatical forms. Context surrounding ungrammatical verb forms and child's age significantly affected monitoring ability. (Author/JDD)
