Weird Past Tense Forms.
Xu, Fei; Pinker, Steven
Journal of Child Language, v22 n3 p531-56 Oct 1995
Presents an analysis of past tense and participle usages by children, focusing on overapplications of irregular vowel-change patterns, as in "brang"; blends, as in "branged"; productive suffixations of "-en," as in "walken"; gross distortions, as in "mail-membled"; and double-suffixation, as in "walkeded." Findings indicate that these errors are rare. (44 references) (Author/CK)
