Description

The aim of the project was to supplement Swedish child language research by studying several aspects in a fairly large number of children of the same age over a period of some years, i.e. to make a longitudinal investigation of the language of children. During the project, data were collected on articulation, vocabulary and sentence structure in about 250 Swedish children at the ages 4, 6, 8 and 10, and on the reading and writing performances of those children from the end of the first year of school and the start of the fourth. In addition, some background data were obtained from the children's parents. These data concern the children's physical, mental and emotional development, socio-economic circumstances, verbal stimulation and intellectual performance.

2. Studies of interrelations between various language abilities and of the question of which language abilities at any given age have strong relations t
