Sample Size Effects on Temporal Reliability of Language Sample Measures of Preschool Children.
Gavin, William J.; Giles, Lisa
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v39 n6 p1258-62 Dec 1996
This study examined the temporal reliability of four quantitative measurements of linguistic behaviors in 20 preschool children observed in a naturalistic setting. Although inadequate reliability was found for the measure which used total number of words, very high reliability coefficients were obtained for the measures which used number of different words, mean length of utterance, and mean sentence length.
