Nippold, Marilyn A.; And Others
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n2 p245-53 Apr 1997
A proverb explanation task consisting of 24 low-familiarity expressions was administered to 353 individuals (ages 13-79) to examine how patterns of language growth in adults compared to those observed in adolescents. Results indicate performance improved markedly during adolescence and into early adulthood, and then began to decline during the 60s. (Author/CR)
