Agreement Morphemes

The transcript evidence was assessed by randomly selecting the recordings of 15 children and transcribing them a second time by an independent judge. Separate calculations were made for Aide-Is, Are and Quoi, as well as for the third person singular -s and the form of the past -ed. The percentages of concordance in children ranged from 90% to 98%. The percentages on the grammatical morpheme ranged from 95 (for aide-is) to 98 (for Auxiliary-Is). A proposal for interaction between the case, the agreement, the form of time and the license of the subjects, based on data from both the adult language and the learning of the language.
