Knowledge and Acquisition of the Spanish Verbal Paradigm in Five Communities.
Schnitzer, Marc L.
Hispania, v79 n4 p830-44 Dec 1996
Examines the results of a nonce-verb test administered to adults and children in five hispanophone communities to determine their control of the inflectional morphology of the Spanish verbal system. Results indicate that adults have less access to natural productive verbal processes than do children. Notes that these results have implications for linguistic theory and first and second language acquisition. (27 references) (Author/CK)
