The Acquisition of Subject-Verb Agreement in Written French: From Novices to Experts' Errors.
Fayol, Michel; Largy, Pierre; Hupet, Michel
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v11 n2 p153-74 Apr 1999
Aims at demonstrating the gradual automatization of subject-verb agreement operation in young writers by examining developmental changes in the occurrence of agreement errors. Finds that subjects' performance moved from systematic errors to attraction errors through an intermediate phase. Concludes that attraction errors are a byproduct of the automatization of the implementation of the agreement process. (SC)
