Gutierrez-Clellen, Vera F.; Hofstetter, Richard
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v37 n3 p645-54 Jun 1994
Examination of syntactic complexity in the movie retellings of 77 elementary school-age Spanish-speaking children revealed developmental differences in the length of T-units, index of subordination, use of relative clauses, and prepositional phrases. Analysis underscores the significance of subordination as a cohesive device and as an indicator of narrative proficiency. (Author/JDD)
