Theakston, Anna L.; Lieven, Elena V. M.; Pine, Julian M.; Rowland, Caroline F.
Journal of Child Language, v28 n1 p127-52 Feb 2001
Investigates the role of performance limitations in children's early acquisition of verb-argument structure. Tested Valian's (1991) claims that intransitive frames are easier for children to produce early in development than transitive frames, because they do not require a direct object argument.
