The Role of Parental Input in the Development of a Morphological System.
Goldin-Meadow, Susan; Mylander, Carolyn
Journal of Child Language, v17 n3 p527-63 Oct 1990
Spontaneous gestures of a deaf child unexposed to sign language were studied to determine whether regularities existing within gestures were akin to morphological structure. The child's gestures, handshape/motion combinations forming a matrix for communication, suggest that structural regularity at the intraword level is a resilient property of language.
