Shown that given reasonable domain-general assumptions, an unbiased rational learner could realize that languages have a hierarchical structure based on typical child-directed input. Can use this paradigm to explore the role of recursive elements in a grammar: the “winning” grammar contains additional non-recursive counterparts for complex NPs; perhaps language, while fundamentally recursive, contains duplicate non-recursive elements that more precisely match the input?
