Children's Understanding of Adverbs Denoting Degree of Likelihood.
Hoffner, Cynthia; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v17 n1 p217-31 Feb 1990
Two studies examining children's understanding of three terms denoting different degrees of likelihood showed that, while preschoolers showed little comprehension of the adverbs' meanings, by fourth grade, most children could distinguish between them. Children understood the distinction between "definitely" and the other two terms better than the distinction between "probably" and "possibly." (Author/CB)
