GUCK (1.) MAL (.) ICH (.) MACHE (3.). EARLY SUBORDINATE CLAUSE CONSTRUCTIONS OF GERMAN-SPEAKING CHILDREN
This article shows that data from the acquisition of subordinated clauses supports a cognitive-functional approach to language development. The idea that children acquire subordinated clauses via the fixation of the head parameter of the IP cannot be reconstructed with the help of the data at hand. Early subordinated clauses appear with certain matrix verbs in certain syntactic confi gurations, which are quite formulaic.
