The Development of Definitional Skill.
Snow, Catherine E.
Journal of Child Language, v17 n3 p697-710 Oct 1990
Definitions by elementary students were scored for conformity with Aristotelian form and information quality. School exposure to English was correlated with quality and quantity of formal definitions given. Results of this and a similar French-as-a-Foreign-Language exercise indicate that definitional ability depends on opportunity to practice required forms. (JL)
