In Experiment 1, scores on the Words and Gestures measures were compared with scores on beh...

The speech of twenty Spanish-English bilingual children, aged six to ten, was recorded while the children engaged in pretend play with puppets in Spanish. The puppets represented a variety of characters with different social relationships. Analyses focused on the distribution of discourse markers (DMs) across the different roles played. Results ind...
Article
Heavy-NP shift is the tendency for speakers to place long or "heavy" noun phrase direct objects at the end of a sentence rather than in the canonical post-verbal position. Three experiments using several task variations confirmed that length of the noun phrase influenced the ordering of the noun phrase and prepositional phrase during production. We...
