Advanced Verb Form Production in Story Retelling.
Sutter, Judith C. L.; Johnson, Cynthia J.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n5 p1067-80 Oct 1995
This study investigated the rate at which 60 elementary school children produced 3 advanced verb forms--past progressive, past perfect progressive, and past perfect--when retelling narratives. Results suggest that advanced verb production is influenced by children's sensitivity to type of narrative register, the propositional ability associated with narrative development, and the progressive meaning of the -ing suffix.
