Discourse and the Acquisition of Grammatical Morphemes.
Farrar, Michael Jeffrey
Journal of Child Language, v17 n3 p607-24 Oct 1990
Examines the relationship between adult recasts of child utterances and the child's acquisition of syntactic structures. Results indicate that maternal recasts of specific morphemes were related to the acquisition of those specific morphemes during certain developmental periods, whereas other grammatical morphemes were facilitated by expansions and topic continuations.
