摘要

This study explores children’s acquisition of manner and causal questions by examining hui zenme ‘how’ and zenme hui ‘why’ with a comprehension task (i.e. Picture Identification) and a production task (i.e. Question Asking) designed to investigate the acquisition of manner and causal questions’ agency effects’ genericity effects’ and task effects. The 48 participants were preschoolers divided into three age groups: 4, 5, and 6 year olds. The major findings are’ first’ there was no significant difference in response to hui zenme and zenme hui (p >.05), but performance was slightly better on the latter. Second, agency and genericity effects were significant in the participants’ responses to zenme questions (p <.05) with participants performing better on those with agent subjects and in the non-generic condition. Finally, more wrong responses were produced often in response to manner questions, indicating that questions with hui zenme were more difficult to acquire than questions with zenme hui.
