Emergent Use of English Grammatical Morphemes by Chinese-Speaking Children.
Cameron, Catherine Ann; Lee, Kang
IRAL, v37 n1 p43-58 Feb 1999
This longitudinal study examined emergent use of major English grammatical morphemes by three 6-year-old Chinese-speaking children learning English as a second language. Although Chinese is morphologically different from English (has no articles, tense, or plural inflections or auxiliaries), articles are among first morphemes used correctly by the three children, which contrasts with the finding that articles are most difficult for Chinese adults to acquire.
