Production vs. Comprehension: Differences in Underlying Competencies.
Flynn, Suzanne
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v8 n2 p135-64 Jun 1986
Fifty-one adult Spanish speakers at three levels of ESL ability were tested in both their elicited imitation (production) and act-out (comprehension) of complex sentences that were structurally identical. Analysis of variance results indicate that production tests, not comprehension tests, principally evaluate a learner's structural knowledge. (Author/LMO)
