She tested sentences with and without clitics. She found that Quechua-Spanish bilingual children had their lowest levels of accuracy in the strict dative interpretation of sentences involving an indirect object clitic le of the type shown in (28) due to high levels of variability in the interpretation of the clitic as an indirect object, an oblique or a locative expression, the latter a possible interpretation for the null marker available in Quechua. Their results were significantly different from those of the Spanish monolingual control group.

In this case, crosslinguistic influence is shown by the absence of third person object morphology in the L2 verb following the L1 patterns in null topic contexts. Evidence of null objects with definite antecedents in the Spanish of two groups of Central Quechua-Spanish and Southern Quechua-Spanish bilingual children (ages 9–13) was also found by Sánchez (2003). The picture-based narratives of both groups of bilingual children showed that the second most frequent type of direct object in Quechua was a null object, the most frequent type being an overt DP.
