Abstract

This study relates to the assessment of the argument of the poverty of the stimulus in that we conducted a measure of the number of true proportional analogies between chunks in a language with case markers, Japanese. On a bicorpus of 20,000 sentences, we show that at least 96% of the analogies of form between chunks are also analogies of meaning, thus reporting the presence of at least two million true analogies between chunks in this corpus. As the number of analogies between chunks overwhelmingly surpasses the number of analogies between sentences by three orders of magnitude for this size of corpora, we conclude that proportional analogy is an efficient and undeniable structuring device between Japanese chunks.
