The Effect of One Aspect of Sentence Structure, Embedded Parts, on Children's Comprehension.
Kamm, Karlyn; Askov, Eunice
This study investigated the effect of embedded parts (intervening words between the main subject and verb of a sentence) on young readers' abilities to comprehend when the embedded parts do not present a significant change in sentence structure. Two schools in Bemidji, Minnesota, were selected for the study: school one is located in a low socioeconomic area, while school two includes children from average or above average socioeconomic levels. Comprehension was tested through the use of the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development Comprehension by questions pertaining to the detail contained either in the embedded test (Version E) or in another position in the sentence (Version C). Significant differences were found for school, sex, and grade main effects. No significant differences were found for the test version effect. (Author/RB)
