501 Japanese Verbs

Kim, Marcus, Pinker, Hollander & Coppola (1994) argue that thepreference children and adults show for regular inflection for verbs andnouns with novel meanings (e.g. The batter *flew/flied out to centrefield) should be attributed to their grammatically based sensitivity to thederivations of these verbs and nouns. However, it could also be thatspeakers avoid the use of irregular forms to avoid conveying theconventional meaning associated with the irregular form, such asliterally flying to centre field. This paper, in reply to Kim et al. (1994),reinterprets their findings and argues for a semantic/functional account,without resorting to a grammatical account. 041b061a72
