Is Regularization Determined by Semantics, or Grammar, or Both? Comments on Kim, Marcus, Pinker, Hollander & Coppola (1994).
Shirai, Yasuhiro
Journal of Child Language, v24 n2 p495-501 Jun 1997
Reinterprets the findings of Kim "et al" (1994), who argue that the preference children and adults show for regular inflection for verbs and nouns with novel meanings should be attributed to their grammatically based sensitivity to the derivations of these verbs and nouns. This article argues for a semantic/functional instead of a grammatical account. (nine references) (Author/CK)
