A Study of the Relationship of Cognitive Development and Syntactical Comprehension.
Hutson, Barbara
To analyze the relationship of logical development and comprehension of syntax, 60 children aged 5-8 years were individually tested. Measures included class inclusion, conservation of substance and weight, a sorting test, and a test of comprehension of active and passive sentences. Class inclusion was not strongly related to syntactical comprehension, but conservation was. Syntax was more strongly correlated with conservation than with another language measure. Logic may be related in different ways to vocabulary, syntax, and verbal fluency. Syntax, the organization of elements in a sentence, seems to have an appreciable relationship with logic during this period of development. (Author)
