Factors Influencing Syntactic Awareness Skills in Normal Readers and Poor Comprehenders.
Nation, Kate; Snowling, Margaret J.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v21 n2 p229-41 Jun 2000
Using a word order correction paradigm, this study assessed syntactic awareness skills in children with good and poor reading comprehension, matched for age, decoding skill, and nonverbal ability. Poor comprehenders performed less well than normal readers, and the performance of both groups was influenced by the syntactic complexity and semantic ambiguity of the sentences. (Author/VWL)
