Abstract

A nine-month longitudinal study (N = 15, aged 3:10-4:1l at sutdy onset) traced the development of principles of control in children's grammars & tested hypotheses about the linguistic analyses underlying the observed nonadult interpretations of constructions. Results confirm a developmental sequence that is driven by lexical learning & changing structural analyses, & provide further information about a period experienced by some children in which pronominal reference is constrained in a manner that is clearly related to control phenomena.
