Slot and Frame Patterns and the Development of the Determiner Category.
Pine, Julian M.; Lieven, Elena V. M.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v18 n2 p123-38 Jun 1997
A study tested models concerning syntactic categories in early multiword speech by investigating overlap in contexts in which children (n=11) used determiner types. Results indicate children have little knowledge of relationships between different determiner types, suggesting development of an adultlike syntactic determiner category may be gradual, involving progressive broadening of the range of lexically specific determiner frames.
