Overregularization in English Plural and Past Tense Inflectional Morphology: A Response to Marcus (1995).
Marchman, Virginia A.; Plunkett, Kim; Goodman, Judith
Journal of Child Language, v24 n3 p767-79 Oct 1997
Marcus (1995) suggests that the rate of overregularization of English irregular plural nouns is not substantively different from that of English irregular past tense verbs. A response to this claim reviews longitudinal parental report data, which indicates that children are significantly more likely to produce noun overregularizations than verb overregularizations across a prescribed age period.
