Nippold, Marilyn A.; Haq, Faridah Serajul
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v39 n1 p166-76 Feb 1996
Evaluation of the role of concreteness and familiarity in the development of proverb comprehension in 180 students in grades 5, 8, and 11 found that both concreteness and familiarity as well as student age, influenced comprehension. Results support the "metasemantic" and the "language experience" hypotheses of language comprehension development. (DB)
