    Abstract

    This article has a purpose to examine some of their hypotheses about Appearance versus Function, Over Extension and Grammatic Relation in the early discourse of Indonesian children. Method of obtaining the discourse is by showing selected pictures to children aged two to eight years and documented the discourse for analyses. Results show that a great proportion conform the hypotheses. Three new phenomenas were found in Indonesian children’s speech the children were more able to say passive verb phrases rather than active verb phrases. Children after the age of five years were able to distinguish the situation of objects by using the conjunction of being or then, and children before the age of five years are not able to combine two objects in the pictures with the word and.
