Abstract

Linguistic development of several groups of children over ages 5 to 10 is measured by the number of paradigmatic responses given to words of different form classes and frequencies. Although the developmental sequence appears to be invariant, it is displaced on the age continuum for different subcultural groups. Amish children develop more slowly than rural Maryland children, and rural Maryland children develop more slowly than urban Maryland children, when all groups are matched on intelligence. Differences in linguistic development associated with SES among urban children appear slight.
