Two groups of very young children were given the task of imitating sentences containing multiple prenominal adjectives. The adjectives were presented in preferred and nonpreferred orders. No differences in imitation were found between orders of adjective presentations. Younger children made fewer errors than older children on this task. Both groups exhibited order preferences in a production task which did not correspond exactly to those of older children and adults.
