Syntactic Categories in the Speech of Young Children: The Case of the Determiner.
Pine, Julian M.; Martindale, Helen
Journal of Child Language, v23 n2 p369-95 Jun 1996
This study assessed the relative merits of adult-like syntactic and limited scope formula accounts of children's early determiner use to evaluate the claim that children can be said to be operating with a syntactic determiner category early in development. The study focuses specifically on Valian's (1986) criteria for attributing the syntactic category of determiner to young children. (Author/JL)
