Clark, Eve V.; Berman, Ruth A.
Journal of Child Language, v14 n3 p547-67 Oct 1987
Examination of the types of linguistic knowledge that affect three- to nine-year-olds' (N=60) and adults' (N=12) ability to understand and produce novel compounds in Hebrew revealed that comprehension was achieved ahead of production. Knowledge of morphological form had little effect on comprehension, but was crucial to production. (Author/CB)
