Language Matches: Illuminating or Confounding?
Plante, Elena; And Others
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v36 n4 p772-76 Aug 1993
This paper reviews limitations in the interpretations of group differences in studies that use younger, language-matched controls in addition to age-matched controls to examine the role of "language level" on performance. Problems arise because of the multidimensional nature of language, extraneous age effects associated with language matching, and erroneous interpretations involving null findings. (Author/JDD)
