Accelerating Language Learning in Young Children.
Roth, Froma P.
Journal of Child Language, v11 n1 p89-107 Feb 1984
Examined effects of direct intervention on language learning. Using a toy manipulation task, 18 children aged 3;6 to 4;6 were systematically taught linguistic structures beyond their developmental grasp. Solid improvement was found in the experimental conditions; no significant improvement was noted in control conditions, showing that the language learning process is somewhat independent of cognitive development.
