Auditory Comprehension and Aging: Decline in Syntactic Processing.
Obler, Loraine K.; And Others
Applied Psycholinguistics, v12 n4 p433-52 Dec 1991
Tested comprehension of syntactic structures by presenting each structure with both plausible and implausible content. Results revealed that cognitive nonlinguistic factors were important for comprehension and that errors and reaction time increased with age. The minimal contribution of neuropsychological factors to this decline suggests that the subtle syntactic processing breakdown may be language specific. (21 references) (JL)
