Children's Command of Quantification.
Lidz, Jeffrey; Musolino, Julien
Cognition, v84 n2 p113-54 Jun 2002
Two experiments investigated how child and adult speakers of English and Kannada (Dravidian) interpret scopally ambiguous sentences containing numerally quantified noun phrases and negation. Results showed that 4-year-olds' interpretations were constrained by the surface hierarchical relations (the c-command relations) between sentence elements and not by their linear order. (Author/KB)
