International Journal of Bilingualism, v3 n4 p351-62 Dec 1999
Investigates the cross-linguistic patterns of the overgeneralization of the intransitive/transitive alternations found in children's speech and provides new evidence from findings based on the acquisition of French. The morphosyntatic characterization of such phenomena in English and Hebrew child language is followed by a description of the morphosyntactic characterization of such alternation in French.
