Children do not substitute object relatives with subject relatives in every Romance language: the case of Spanish

Publicația: Revue roumaine de linguistique, LVII (2), p. 161-181
Editura:Editura Academiei
Rezumat:Restrictive relative clauses collected using the Spanish version of the elicitation test developed in a collaborative project (Friedmann 2010, Friedmann et al. in preparation) show that 5 year-old children (ch5) produce almost adult-like rates of target SR in Spanish, whereas target ORs are close to chance level at the same age and still 20% lower than adults’ 22 months later (ch7). These results confirm widely reported cross-linguistic research showing that SRs are easier than ORs (Labelle 1988, among many others). However, the high error variability observed in the target-deviant RCs, as well as the absence of any evident morphosyntactic pattern as an alternative to the production of ORs (such as the use of passives or resumptives) makes it difficult to maintain the existence of some clear OR-by-SR substitution strategy in Spanish at this age.
