Abstract

We report elicited production & grammaticality judgment data from 3 experiments on the status of resumptive pronouns in English. Taking all the data together, we argue that the children's grammars are nevertheless on target & suggest that their overacceptance reflects parsing considerations. This study thus examined children's acquisition of syntax in light of the development of linguistic processing systems.
