Writing in Four- to Six-Year-Olds: Representation of Semantic and Phonetic Similarities and Differences.
Landsmann, Liliana Tolchinsky; Levin, Iris
Journal of Child Language, v14 n1 p127-44 Feb 1987
When Israeli four- to six-year-olds (N=120) wrote pairs of nouns sharing a syllable and sentences sharing either mainly nouns or mainly verbs, analysis indicated that the older the children, the more their invented writing reflected common linguistic elements and length of utterance. Nouns were represented in children's written productions earlier than verbs and adverbs. (Author/CB)
