The Relationship between Memory Span and Measures of Imitative and Spontaneous Language Complexity in Preschool Children.
Blake, Joanna; And Others
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v17 n1 p91-107 Mar 1994
Preschool children were given a memory task that required repeating a list of animal names and a sentence imitation task. Results confirmed a relationship between word span and language imitation in younger preschool children and the notion of a memory constraint on early spontaneous language. Increasing mastery of linguistic rules appeared to obviate a memory constraint on spontaneous language. (AA)
