Idiom Interpretation in Isolation versus Context: A Developmental Study with Adolescents.
Nippold, Marilyn A.; Martin, Stephanie Tarrant
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v32 n1 p59-66 Mar 1989
Idiom interpretation under two different presentation modes, Isolation and Context, was examined developmentally in 475 adolescents ages 14 through 17. Accuracy was greater for idioms in context than in isolation and improved during the age range. Idiom interpretation was significantly correlated to specific measures of literacy. (Author/DB)
