Grammatical Knowledge of Third Grade Good and Poor Readers.
Waltzman, Dava E.; Cairns, Helen S.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v21 n2 p263-84 Jun 2000
Investigated the relationship between grammatical knowledge and reading ability in third grade good and poor readers. Two aspects of grammar--binding and control--were assessed to determine whether poor readers had syntactic deficits. Interpretations were assessed through a sentence-picture matching task in which picture depictions of all possible interpretations of pronominal elements in verbally presented sentences were included.
