Competence and Talent in Verbal Riddle Comprehension
Fowles, Barbara; Glanz, Marcia E.
Journal of Child Language, 4, 3, 433-52, Oct 77
Children in grades 1-3 were asked to retell and explain a series of riddles. Ability to recall riddles was not predictive of ability to explain them. Three cognitive factors seemed to determine level of riddle competence. Implications concern the relationship of riddle competence to reading ability and metalinguistic facility. (CHK)
