Development of Sentence Interpretation Strategies by Typically Developing and Late-Talking Toddlers.
Thal, Donna J.; Flores, Melanie
Journal of Child Language, v28 n1 p173-93 Feb 2001
Examined use of word order and animacy for interpretation of sentences by typically-developing and language delayed children. Results indicate that typically-developing 2-year-olds use neither cue consistently to interpret sentences; typically-developing 2.5-year-olds used a coalition of word order and animacy cues; and language-delayed 2.5-year-olds used neither cue. At age 3, both groups used word order exclusively to interpret sentences. (Author/VWL)
