Children's Knowledge of Subjunctive Clauses: Obviation, Binding, and Reference.
Avrutin, Sergey; Wexler, Kenneth
Language Acquisition, v8 n1 p69-102 1999-2000
Examined Russian-speaking children's knowledge of syntactic and discourse-related restrictions on the interpretation of pronouns in subjunctive clauses. Eighteen children (4-5 years of age) participated in a truth-value judgment task. In constructions in which syntactic knowledge is implicated, children's performance is very similar to that of adults. (Author/VWL)
