Oller, John W., Jr.; Kim, Kunok; Choe, Yongjae
Language Testing, v17 n4 p377-96 Oct 2000
Discusses a general theory of signs showing that the relationship between acquired language proficiencies and nonverbal abilities must be closer than commonly supposed. Presents a general theory of signs showing why it is possible in principle to make linguistically and culturally unbiased judgments about intellectual abilities on the basis of abstract "nonverbal" tasks or performance inventories.
