The Generalization of Psycholinguistic Research to Other English Speaking Cultures.
Tierney, Robert J.
This study attempted to determine whether the findings of psycholinguists to syntax and reading comprehension could be generalized to children of other English-speaking cultures. Specifically, the influence of material written at different levels of syntactic maturity (according to the T-unit analysis) upon the reading comprehension of selected Australian fourth graders was determined. The findings underline the need for caution in generalizing American research findings to other English-speaking cultures and for further studies of language development of children from other English-speaking cultures.
