Sažetak
During the acquisition of verbal morphology, children develop certain rules based on the forms they have already acquired and extend them to produce new forms. This is an important step because generalizations can increase the number of forms acquired. However, not all verb forms are predictable and cannot be easily generated by a general rule. This gives rise to unacceptable so-called overgeneralizations. Children overgeneralize because they cope with the complexity of the system they are confronted with. To figure out the patterns of overgeneralizations, one must examine what increases or decreases the likelihood of overgeneralization. Two factors can be discerned: frequency and class size. Most of the studies investigated the effects of frequency and class size in the domain of English past tense. But there is still a debate on how exactly these factors affect the acquisition of verbal morphology in highly inflected languages like Croatian. Morphological features of Croatian make it very suitable for producing a large number of deviations from canonicity within a conjugation paradigm made by children during the early stages of language acquisition. Parental questionnaires are designed and (often) standardized to obtain a general measure of language development. However, they have not been used to investigate more specific phenomena like overgeneralizations in child language. In this study, we aim to test the relationship between overgeneralized forms and specific properties of input (frequency and class size). Participants were parents of Croatian monolingual children ages from 2 ; 6 to 5 ; 11 (N=87). For the purpose of this study, an online parental questionnaire was developed. Parents were asked to indicate how often their child produces a particular verb form using a 5-point Likert scale. Different measures of frequency and class size were used to examine the relationship between overgeneralized forms and the properties of the input. Our results are in line with studies that showed the facilitative effect of frequency and sometimes class size on the acquisition of inflectional morphology. Similar tendencies were observed by using a different methodology, both regarding the parental questionnaire and regarding the usage of diverse measures of frequency and class size.
