  • For a charted illustration of denominals and their opposites, please see the Appendix.
  • Thirty-seven children with language deficits were identified and assessed on both standardized language measures and experimental tasks involving the generation of regular and irregular past tenses together with denominals.
  • This seemed misguided to me; I think it would make more sense to say that the denominals are part of a VP-shell configuration, and the subject comes from the outer VP (which would mean, according to their theory, that it is in ‘agent’ position, and would be seen as ‘causing’ the action).
