Aims and Scope
This study examines the function and acquisition of German capitalization. It aims to generalize previous theoretical approaches to develop an integrated model. The empirical portion investigates performance data from approx. 5,700 subjects, extending the findings into an acquisition model. Using neural network simulations, it differentiates between types of learners and offers evidence for qualitative shifts in learning strategy.
