Let's Change the Subject: Focus Movement in Early Grammar.
Thornton, Rosalind
Language Acquisition, v10 n3 p229-71 2002
Reanalyzes what the literature has taken to be children's productions of Gen subjects and argues that Gen subjects do not exist in child English. Suggests that what look like Gen subjects appear only in specific discourse contexts: contexts of contrastive focus or contexts of emphatic focus. (Author/VWL)
