The Child as Linguistic Historian.
Labov, William
Language Variation and Change, v1 n1 p85-97 1989
Studies of (TD) and (ING) in King of Prussia (Pennsylvania) families show that children have matched their parents' patterns of variation by age seven, before many categorical phonological and grammatical rules can be established. Some dialect-specific and socially marked constraints are acquired before constraints with general articulatory motivation. (Author/CB)
