Diary vs. Representative Checklist Assessment of Productive Vocabulary.
Reznick, J. Steven; Goldfield, Beverly A.
Journal of Child Language, v21 n2 p465-72 Jun 1994
Infants were followed longitudinally from 1;2 to 1;10. Parents maintained a journal of child's spoken words and, at 2-month intervals, completed representative checklist of words produced. Results suggest that the diary method is more effective during early emergence of language, and the representative checklist method is more effective late in the second year when vocabulary size becomes relatively large.
