Acquisition of the Plural Morpheme: A Case Study.
Mervis, Carolyn B.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v27 n2 p222-35 Mar 1991
This study analyzed data from a diary study of a child's lexical development. Correct forms and errors in the use of the plural morpheme were recorded from 18 to 30 months. Morphology was acquired before syntax, and there was evidence for a syntactic definition of noun by the age of 20 months. (BC)
