Verbs in Tzotzil (Mayan) Early Syntactic Development.
de Leon, Lourdes
International Journal of Bilingualism, v3 n2-3 p219-39 Sep 1999
Suggests that children follow different paths into learning verbs, and that there are several forces guiding the learning process: cognitive as well as language specific matters, such as morphology, semantics, and discourse. Sketches the basic characteristics of verbs in Tzotzil and examines two children's productions at the end of their one-morpheme utterance period, and at the onset of their early morpheme combinations.
