Examination of Morphosyntactic Measures in 3 to 7 Age Group
Biçim-Sözdizimsel Ölçümlerin 3-7 Yaş Grubunda İncelenmesi

Funda Acarlar [1] , Ceyhun Servi [2] , Gamze Alak [3]


Language sample analysis is widely used in assessing morphosyntactic development. The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between age and morphosyntactic measures derived from language samples of children between the ages of 3 and 7 years. For this purpose, mean length of utterance, clause ratio and syntactic complexity index were calculated from conversational language samples. The relation and predictive value of these measures with age were examined. Conversational language samples were taken from 142 children. It was found that the means of three measures increased with age. The Mean Length of Utterance was shown to have strong correlation with age while clause ratio and syntactic complexity index were moderately correlated. The relationship of these measures with age and their potential use for morpho-syntactic assessment has been discussed. 

Biçim-sözdizimsel gelişimin değerlendirilmesinde dil örneği analizi yaygın olarak kullanılmaktadır. Bu çalışmanın amacı, 3-7 yaş arasındaki çocukların dil örneklerinden alınan biçim-sözdizimsel ölçümlerin yaşla ve birbirleriyle ilişkisinin incelenmesidir. Bu amaçla dil örneklerinden Ortalama Sözce Uzunluğu (OSU), Yan Cümle Oranı (YCO) ve Sözdizimi Karmaşıklığı İndeksi (SÖZK) puanları hesaplanmıştır. Bu ölçümlerin yaşla ilişkileri ve yaşı yordama güçleri incelenmiştir. Çalışma grubunda yer alan 142 çocuktan sohbet bağlamında dil örnekleri alınmıştır. İncelenen üç ölçüm ortalamalarının yaşla doğru orantılı olarak arttığı, OSU’nun yaş ile yüksek düzeyde, YCO ve SÖZK’nın ise orta düzeyde ilişkili olduğu belirlenmiştir.  Her ölçümün yaşla ilişkileri ve biçim-sözdizimsel gelişimi değerlendirme amaçlı kullanım potansiyelleri tartışılmıştır.
