A FURTHER TEST OF THE UTILITY OF A TECHNIQUE FOR ASSESSING STRUCTURE OF LANGUAGE IN CHILDREN AND ADULTS. FINAL REPORT.
SUCI, GEORGE J.
THIS DOCUMENT COMPRISES REPORTS ON TWO TECHNIQUES USED IN SIX EXPERIMENTS DESIGNED TO ASSESS THE SYNTACTIC AND SEMANTIC PROCESSING OF AUDITORY, LINGUISTIC INPUTS. PAST RESEARCH HAS DEVELOPED THE "PROBE-LATENCY TECHNIQUE," THE FIRST OF THE TWO TECHNIQUES USED IN THIS RESEARCH, FOR ASSESSING THE STRUCTURE OF LINGUISTIC INPUTS. RESULTS TO DATE INDICATE THAT THE PROBE-LATENCY STRUCTURE IS PRIMARILY A FUNCTION OF SYNTACTIC RELATIONS IN THE INPUT, AND IS RELATIVELY INDEPENDENT OF SEMANTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STIMULUS MATERIAL. THE "QUESTION TECHNIQUE," THE SECOND OPERATIONAL METHOD USED, WAS DEVELOPED AS AN APPROACH TO SEMANTIC PROCESSING. THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY (USING BOTH THESE TECHNIQUES) INDICATE THAT THE QUESTION TECHNIQUE HAS PROMISE AS AN APPROACH TO SEMANTIC PROCESSES. THE STUDY ALSO GIVES FURTHER CONFIRMATION TO THE INDEPENDENCE OF SEMANTIC FROM SYNTACTIC PROCESSES. (AUTHOR/AMM)
