Subject: Past Tense Retrieval in Children


Having already asked for references on child morphology, I have decided to
extend my dissertation topic to include the retrieval of verbs too. So,
once again can anyone recommend journals, articals and such like concerning
the timmings of past tense verb retrieval? The general train of thought is
that regular past tense endings are retrieved at a slower rate due to rule
application but I need references that qualify this.

Thank You in advance and Merry Christmas, Alison.

Dear Linguists:

The Albuquerque Biopark recently opened a new exhibit with African animals,
and our Education curator suggested we think out of the box when developing
educational discovery stations.  He suggested a discussion of African
language families (!!!! as if we have 20 years with zoo visitors !!!!!).
Instead, I am attempting to put together an explanation of the complexity of the
clicking sounds used in some African languages, and your site has been a great help.
Can anyone tell me where I can find recordings of African children's songs?
At this point, I'm not picky about language - as long as they are
sub-Saharan African, rather than European languages.  I'd like to attempt
to teach children a simple song, and show them pictures of people (and then
the animals) that live where that song is sung.

Sincerely,
Lisa Pickens, Docent
