The values at each point in time represent the mean percentage for the whole group in a cumulative fashion for every two months, except for the last point, which corresponds to one single month, 2;3. The curves summarize in a graphic way the partly parallel development of the (proto-)articles in Spanish and German. In Spanish, after a steep increase from 1;6 to 1;7–1;8, growth is rather constant, whereas in German between 1;9 and 2;2 it is practically exponential (3%, 10%, 20%, 24% and 51%). The most important difference that arises from the comparison of the two curves is the temporal displacement of the two developments, in German always taking place almost half a year later than in Spanish.

G. Prince & Smolensky 1993), in order to establish the ranking of constraints in the child’s grammar and its relationship to constraint ranking in the adult grammar. g. no PW immediately dominates a σ (Selkirk 1996:190). (5) Faithfulness constraints M(σ)-IO:Every syllable in the Input has a correspondent in the Output:no syllable deletion is allowed At the one-word stage, a single prosodic word is allowed, and each word can only consist of one foot. Thus some constraints limiting production to one PW and limiting the length of the PW to one foot are necessary for the earliest stages.

They are thus proto-articles or articles in “embryonic stage”. The production of such unfooted syllables in the acquisition of Spanish has been also confirmed for the age of 1;8 by Gennari & Demuth (1997) and Demuth (this volume). From a syntactic perspective, López-Ornat (1997) has reported production of such fillers for Spanish and Bottari, Cipriani & Chilosi (1993/1994) for Italian, beginning at about 1;7 in both cases. In Lleó (1997) it has been shown that until 1;10 German children do not generally produce filler syllables or proto-articles.
