This research attempts to investigate the relation between age and productivity of tense inflections of typically developing Bangla speaking pre-school children. Data has been collected from speech samples of 30 children aged 24 months to 48 months. Also, it tries to create a developmental sequence of verb inflections of tense. The findings of this research can be beneficial for future studies as well as to create a profile for typically developing children. Moreover, children with language impairments can be benefited from the findings. The researcher has tried to figure out the answers of these questions: a. When do children start to use different tense inflections productively? b. What is the comparative range of usage of the productive morphological verb inflections of Bangla tense among the children? c. Is there any developmental trend in the productive verb inflections of tenses in relation to Tomasello’s (2008) usage based approach; for typically developing Bangla speaking pre-school children?
