Interrelationships in Children's Language Production
Studies that have explored interrelationships among linguistic components during children's speech production are reviewed. Linguistic trade-offs are thought to occur when increases in complexity or accuracy in one component are associated with decreases in complexity or accuracy in another component. The occurrence of trade-offs appears to be influenced by elicitation condition and developmental level of the speaker. Explanations for the occurrence or absence of trade-offs, including limited capacity processing models, are discussed, and implications of the work on linguistic interactions for clinical assessment are offered.
