Is Before Really Easier to Understand than After?
Goodz, Naomi S.
Child Development, v53 n3 p822-25 Jun 1982
It was hypothesized that children may experience more difficulty in interpreting "after" than "before" because the sentence typically used in comprehension tasks facilitates dependence on sentence-processing strategies effective with "before" sentences but only partially effective with "after" sentences. For 24 nursery school children, "after" was not found to be a more difficult term to understand than "before." (Author/MP)
