paper rec, actual linguistics for once (phonotactics) 

ok this is *rad*: dx.doi.org/10.1037/xlm0000686

apparently you can teach adults to learn "phonotactics" of button-pushes, and the end result when analyzing errors looks a lot like 9-year-olds learning phonotactics (evidence of learning on Day 1, before consolidation... as opposed to adults, who need to sleep before they'll obey phonotactic constraints in their speech errors)
