We present a computational model of usage-based learning of verb argument structure in young children. The model integrates Bayesian classification and prediction to learn from utterances paired with appropriate semantic representations. The model balances item-based and class-based knowledge in language use, demonstrating appropriate word order generalizations, and recovery from overgeneralizations with no negative evidence or change in learning parameters.
