The Marking of New Information in Children's Narratives: A Comparison of English, French, German, and Mandarin Chinese.
Hickman, Maya; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v23 n3 p591-619 Oct 1996
Examines children's uses of nominal determiners ("local markings") and utterance structure ("global markings") to introduce new referents through the use of narratives elicited from preschoolers, elementary school students and adults in English, French, German and Mandarin Chinese. Findings reveal that local markings emerge first, and local and global markings are related. (42 references) (Author/CK)
