Abstract

An interview technique was developed to elicit judgments from young children about the well-formedness & referential properties of sentences. Judgments are compared with act-out responses of a group of children aged 3:9-5:4 (N = 20). It is argued that judgment data are more revealing of children's grammars than are traditional performance tasks.
