Templates in child language
To what extent do developmental templates, or idiosyncratic child word patterns, reflect (i) universal tendencies of neurophysiologically grounded production, (ii) perceptually-based guidance due to the frequency of occurrence in input speech or to the rhythmic patterning of the adult language, or (iii) formal principles of phonological structure? We will argue here that all of these elements play a role in the emergence of these child structures, which constitute the first evidence of phonology in the child. We focus on the first-word period and provide evidence of both cross-linguistic commonalities and typological differences, which reflect the structure of the ambient language as perceived and filtered by the child. We then focus in on the role of template formation in individual children.
