Children's Comprehension and Production of Derivational Suffixes.
Windsor, Jennifer
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v37 n2 p408-17 Apr 1994
Relational knowledge of 21 derivational suffixes was investigated with 120 children (grades 3-8) and 40 adults. Results obtained from a nonsense-word model indicated that suffixes were comprehended with greater accuracy than they were produced, particularly by the children. Children and adults demonstrated greatest accuracy in comprehension and production with the meaning "without X" (conveyed by the suffix "less"). (Author/JDD)
