Marking of Verb Transitivity by Hebrew-Speaking Children.
Berman, Ruth A.
Journal of Child Language, v20 n3 p641-69 Oct 1993
Command of transitivity permutations in Hebrew, where a change in verb-argument syntax entails a change in verb morphology, were examined in 30 children aged 2, 3, and 8. Findings have implications for the development of derivational morphology, item-based versus class-based learning, and the impact of lexical productivity and language-particular properties on acquisition.
