-1INTRODUCTION Halfway through the twentieth century, linguistics underwent a major methodological shift, from distributional analysis of native-speaker speech (BloomÞeld, 1961), to the analysis of native-speaker intuitions about legal sentence types (Chomsky, 1957; for reviews, see Newmeyer, 1980; Sells, Shieber & Wasow, 1991). In most cases, the native speakers who furnish these intuitions ha...

In this paper, we present findings from a human judgement task we conducted on the effectiveness of syntax filtering in a word completion task. Human participants were asked to review a series of incomplete sentences and identify which words from accompanying lists extend the expressions in a grammatically appropriate way. The accompanying word lists were generated by two word completion system...

The truth-value judgment (TVJ) task has proved to be one of the most illuminating methods of assessing children's linguistic competence developed in recent years. The fundamental property of this task is that it requires the child simply to make a bipolar judgment about whether a statement accurately describes a particular situation alluded to in some context or preamble. The success of the tas...

Whilst some locative verbs alternate between the ground- and figure-locative constructions (e.g. Lisa sprayed the flowers with water/Lisa sprayed water onto the flowers), others are restricted to one construction or the other (e.g. *Lisa filled water into the cup/*Lisa poured the cup with water). The present study investigated two proposals for how learners (aged 5-6, 9-10 and adults) acquire t...

To explain the phenomenon that certain English verbs resist passivization (e.g., *£5 was cost by the book), Pinker (1989) proposed a semantic constraint on the passive in the adult grammar: The greater the extent to which a verb denotes an action where a patient is affected or acted upon, the greater the extent to which it is compatible with the passive. However, a number of comprehension and p...

Between the ages of 3 and 7 years, children have been observed to produce verb argument structure overgeneralization errors (e.g., Don’t giggle me; Bowerman, 1982, 1988; Pinker, 1989). A number of recent studies have begun to find evidence that the precise distributional properties of the input may provide an important part of the explanation for why children retreat from overgeneralization err...

A paradox at the heart of language acquisition research is that, to achieve adult-like competence, children must acquire the ability to generalize verbs into non-attested structures, while avoiding utterances that are deemed ungrammatical by native speakers. For example, children must learn that, to denote the reversal of an action, un- can be added to many verbs, but not all (e.g., roll/unroll...

Linguistic interference in the acquisition of tenses has remained a fertile area for extensive studies on the teaching of English to speakers of other languages. Congruent with previous studies, this study aims to find out whether errors in the learning of a grammatical category is more ascribable to negative transfer resulting from learners’ first language or the rules governing its use in the...

We examined the abilities of aphasic patients to make grammaticality judgments on English sentences instantiating a variety of syntactic structures. Previous studies employing this metalinguistic task have suggested that aphasic patients typically perform better on grammaticality judgment tasks than they do on sentence comprehension tasks, a finding that has informed the current view that gramm...
