Word Knowledge Acquisition in Retarded Children: A Longitudinal Study of Acquisition of a Complex Linguistic Structure.
Cromer, Richard F.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders, v52 n4 p324-34 Nov 1987
A longitudinal study was conducted using 18 mildly/moderately retarded 14- and 15-year-olds to investigate word knowledge acquisition and subcategorization features of the words. Retarded children's errors were highly correlated with word frequency. Two interpretations (gradual acquisition of word knowledge and a reorganization theory) are synthesized. (Author/JDD)
