The Interaction of Syntactic Competence and Vocabulary during Reading by Deaf Students.
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v1 n1 p75-90 Win 1996
This study, involving 424 deaf secondary and postsecondary students, evaluated the interaction between vocabulary knowledge and syntax competence, finding a significantly greater correlation for students in the highest quartile of syntactic competence. It concludes that, unless deaf readers have achieved a reasonable level of syntactic competence, it is difficult for them to capitalize on vocabulary knowledge. (Author/DB)
