Richgels, Donald J.
Language and Speech, v26 pt2 p159-70 Apr-Jun 1983
Discusses children's comprehension of complex sentences as measured by a picture selection test. Concludes that the interplay of both syntactic factors, such as active vs. passive, and nonsyntactic factors, such as expectation, must be considered in any characterization of children's sentence comprehension ability.
