I welcome Carson Schütze's (1999)  response to Rispoli (1998) . It should be clear from Schütze's response that attempts to understand pronoun case errors are serious endeavors with theoretical import. My reply proceeds in the following order: (a) a comparison of approaches, (b) criticisms of the Schütze and Wexler approach, and (c) conclusion.
The approach I have taken to pronoun case errors differs in one major respect from that of Schütze and Wexler (1996) . My approach is an attempt to relate these developmental errors to adult processing and performance models, whereas Schütze and Wexler's approach is an attempt to relate pronoun case errors to adult grammatical competence.
