In other words, abstract part-of-speech categories derive from linguistic units being used in similar environments (MacWhinney 2008; Redington, Chater & Finch 1998). The complexity of language processing becomes clearer if we consider a simple utterance such as Tom likes his new dachshund Seppl. It instantiates a transitive construction at the sentence level and is constructed from several other constructions, such as a pronoun-NP, a complex NP composed out of a possessive, an adjective and a proper noun, and a 3rd person singular verb.

After all, geologists can explain earthquakes due to plate tectonics, and biologists accept the theory of evolution as an explanation for speciation. However, geologists have yet to be able to predict when an earthquake will strike, and no biologist can predict next year’s flu strain. If a classic experiment of the type that we have just outlined is not appropriate for researching dynamic systems, perhaps “formative experiments” are. In formative experiments, the focus is on the implementation of the treatment, rather than only on the endpoint.

In addition, they kept a diary on his most advanced utterances of each day. This dataset allows us to track his development from day to day. The German plural is formed in eight different ways: zero marking or marking by the affixes -n, e, or er, some of which can occur with vowel raising (umlaut) (cf. Table 1). Table 1. The eight German plural classes affix -s -(e)n -e -er Zero - Umlaut Auto-s Bahn-en, Fahne-n Fisch-e Kind-er Lehrer-0 + Umlaut – – Bänk-e Räd-er Kästen-0 The plural marker that a given noun takes depends on the gender of the noun and its phonotactic properties (syllable structure and final sounds).
