Differential Productivity in Young Children's Use of Nouns and Verbs.
Tomasello, Michael; Akhtar, Nameera; Dodsen, Kelly; Rekau, Laura
Journal of Child Language, v24 n2 p373-87 Jun 1997
Examined young children's language productivity with newly learned forms by teaching them four new words: two nouns and two verbs. Findings indicate children combined the novel nouns productively with already known words much more often than they did the novel verbs--by many orders of magnitude and several children pluralized the new nouns, whereas none formed a past tense with a new verb.
