Does children's usage of tense markers (e.g., -ed) vary with different speaking situations?
The study aims to investigate the extent to which sampling contexts (e.g., free play, picture description, story telling) affect children's use of English tense markers (e.g., past tense -ed, be verbs, third person singular present -s). Percent correct usage of tense markers combined will be computed. Differences in percent correct usage of tense markers between the sampling contexts will be evaluated. Results may assist clinicians in assessing children's development of grammatical skills, in general, and tense marking skills, in specific.
Students will make a poster or write a paper based on the data they collect and analyze.
