A quatre enfants normaux on a ensigné une régle morphologique inventée qui contrastait PEU et BEAUCOUP (<
Four normal children were taught contrived morphological rule contrasting FEW and MANY of plural nouns simultaneously in comprehension and production. The rule was then reversed in one modality and then the other modality during simultaneous training of both modalities. Each training condition involved the sequential training of other noun in production. Probes of the untrained modality of each noun trained and of both modalities of untrained nouns were administered to determine if subjects would choose comprehension or production learning for extended a rule. Results for all subjects indicated that after rule acquisition in both moralities, rule reversal training in either comprehension or production was not sufficient to reverse the rule on the probes. Subjects reversed the rule in both modalities for only those nouns trained directly in rule reversal in one or the other modalitiy. Thus comprehension and production functioned as an integral unit for these subjects in applying a rule or rule reversal. The results were replicated across a second contrived morphological rule with one subject.
