The Acquisition of Personal Pronouns in French-Speaking and English-Speaking Children.
Girouard, Pascale C.; Ricard, Marcelle; Decarie, Therese Gouin
Journal of Child Language, v24 n2 p311-26 Jun 1997
Presents a longitudinal study on the acquisition of first-, second-, and third-person pronouns in 12 French- and 12 English- speaking children. Findings revealed that the mastery of pronouns did not follow the developmental sequence predicted by the speech-role hypothesis; the person-role hypothesis was valid when children were speaking; and the name hypothesis was partially valid.
