Syntax and Epistemology in Guatemalan Children's Spanish: The Case of Non-Consciousness and Non-Coreference.
Minkoff, Seth
Language Acquisition, v11 n1 p33-62 2003
Reports results of an acquisition experiment with a group of Spanish-speaking children regarding their knowledge of a semantic restriction that prevents a referring expression from coreferring with a pronoun in certain syntactic configurations if its referent lacks consciousness. Sixteen children participated in a modified Truth-Value Judgment Task. Shows Children's performance on the relevant sentences to be very similar to that of adults. (Author/VWL)
