    Balancing Effort and Information Transmission During Language Acquisition: Evidence From Word Order and Case Marking.Maryia Fedzechkina, Elissa L. Newport & T. Florian Jaeger - 2016 - Cognitive Science 40 (6):n/a-n/a.
    Across languages of the world, some grammatical patterns have been argued to be more common than expected by chance. These are sometimes referred to as language universals. One such universal is the correlation between constituent order freedom and the presence of a case system in a language. Here, we explore whether this correlation can be explained by a bias to balance production effort and informativity of cues to grammatical function. Two groups of learners were presented with miniature artificial languages containing (...)
