The main purpose of this study is to identify the structural characteristics of the verb classes as they appear in the first productions of Italian children. Our hypothesis is that also in the early stage the loci of generation of subjects influence the productions of the VPs: the differences with adults are linked to the presence of an overt object and to its aspectual interpretation. We provide in this respect: 1) the distribution and the position of overt subjects along verb classes 2) the distribution of perfective auxiliaries across verb classes: the interaction between the auxiliaries and the telicity encoded at VP level.

Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to identify the structural characteristics of the verb classes as they appear in the first productions of Italian children. Our hypothesis is that also in the early stage the loci of generation of subjects influence the productions of the VPs: the differences with adults are linked to the presence of an overt object and to its aspectual interpretation. We provide in this respect: 1) the distribution and the position of overt subjects along verb classes 2) the distribution of perfective auxiliaries across verb classes: the interaction between the auxiliaries and the telicity encoded at VP level.
