Abstract

Children's production & comprehension of preposition stranding vs pied-piping (the robber who Dorothy talked to/to whom Dorothy talked) in relative clauses are explored. A discrepancy was found in all subject groups between production & judgments of the genitive pied-piping construction. This finding is accounted for with Richard S. Kayne's (1994) analysis of relative clauses.
