Determiner Phrases and the Debate on Functional Categories in Early Child Language.
Bohnacker, Ute
Language Acquisition, v6 n1 p49-90 1997
Addresses phenomena exhibited by young children such as suffixed and free articles, double definiteness, genitives, pronouns, and "nominal style." Shows that analysis of these early data must invoke at least one functional projection above the noun phrase. Findings argue against any claim about the universal absence of functional structure in early child grammar. (66 references) (Author/CK)
