This is a CRA.

Found via No-sword, the original pictures used in the wug test.

This is a CRA.

I’ve linked to the Wikipedia article above, but the short version is that these pictures were used to test whether children can apply grammatical rules to nonsense words: can they correctly form a plural (or past tense, or whatever) of a word they’ve never heard before.

I mainly posted it because I find the pictures incredibly charming. You can download them here.

Ooh, interesting. I certainly didn’t think that, but it may well have been one of the things they were testing.
