Both corpusbased and experimental studies show that children initially rely strongly on the kind of patterns they hear in the input language and vary them only gradually (Tomasello 2000, 2003; Lieven, Behrens, Speares & Tomasello 2003). Even the acquisition of common sentence structures such as the transitive can take several years, as the generality of the structure is found only at a rather abstract level. A transitive sentence in English is defined by its Subject-Verb-Object structure, but in concrete utterances, subjects, verbs and objects come in many different shapes and sizes (Tomasello 2000).

In contrast to the cross-sectional study, though, the longitudinal microgenetic study had yielded data that could show how the changes had taken place: Learners will reject and generate new strategies in two separate processes. Children would shift away from their predominant error on about a dozen trials before they discovered how to solve the problems correctly. Meanwhile, they generated a variety of incorrect approaches. In other words, cross-sectional data may give us information about the general stages learners will go through, but will not show the exact mechanisms of the changes.

G. the amount of positive or negative feedback in communication) but most critically the quantity (Hart & Risley 1995). A child that hears 50 utterances per hour on average has been exposed to 250,000 utterances by age 4, but a child that hears an average of 800 utterances per hour has an experience of 4 million utterances. The intensity of communication thus has exponential effects, and Hart and Risley found quantity of interaction to be the most relevant predictor for later success in school.
