On the Acquisition of Syntax in Tamil: A Comment on Garman (1974).
Lust, Barbara; Eisele, Julie
Journal of Child Language, v18 n1 p215-26 Feb 1991
Garman (1974), reporting on 20 Tamil children aged 3 to 5, postulated a linguistic strategy and 2 prelinguistic strategies to explain results of a question-picture choice task involving sentences with embedded and subordinate clauses. Reanalysis of this data identifies four processing strategies and argues that certain grammatical sensitivities are adumbrated by the data. (19 references) (JL)
