Regarding query: http://linguistlist.org/issues/16/16-2594.html#1
On Sept. 9, I posted a query about Albright and Hayes (2003) ''Rules vs.
Analogies in the English Past Tense: A Computational/Experimental Study,''
and whether anyone knew of any similar work, especially work involving
children and overgeneralization. Several people who responded kindly
mentioned these articles:
Ragnarsdottir, Simonsen, and Plunkett (1999) ''The acquisition of past
tense morphology in Icelandic and Norwegian children: an experimental
study,'' Journal of Child Language, v. 26, 577-618.
Marchman, Plunkett, and Goodman (1997) ''Overregularization in English
plural and past tense morphology: a respnse to Marcus (1995),'' Journal of
Child Language, v. 24, 767-779.
Ramscar (2002) ''The role of meaning in inflection: Why the past tense does
not require a rule,'' Cognitive Psychology, v. 45, 45-94.
Thanks again to everyone who responded,
