Berko's Test of Morphology.
Berko, Jean
This study explores and describes the evolution of the child's ability to apply morphological rules to new words by asking the child to inflect, to derive, to compound, and to analyze compound words. Nonsense words for the test were created following the rules for possible sound combinations in English. Pictures to represent the nonsense words were then drawn on cards. Test administration takes 10-15 minutes per child. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph, "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts," to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Language Development), title, author, date, and age range preschool, primary, and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
