The Development of Grammatical Case Distinctions in the Use of Personal Pronouns by Spanish-Speaking Preschoolers.
Anderson, Raquel T.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v41 n2 p394-406 Apr 1998
Forty monolingual, Puerto Rican, Spanish-speaking children (ages 2-3) were given two tasks designed to obligate production of nominative and object pronouns in both reflexive and non-reflexive forms. In contrast to English-speaking children, these children demonstrated a pattern in which nominate-pronoun use preceded object-case use. (Author/CR)
