Petretic, Patricia A.; Tweney, Ryan D.
Journal of Child Language, 4, 2, 201-209, Jun 77
The comprehension ability of 36 children at three stages of telegraphic speech was assessed using active behavioral responses to declarative and imperative sentences. A significant increase in verbal and behavioral appropriateness with age was found for imperative and declarative forms. Results are compared with Shipley, Smith and Gleitman's (1969) results.
