Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze and help us better understand the use of Elaborative Noun Phrases (ENP) in typically developing children between the ages of four and seven. ENPs can be used as an indicator of literate language development. Previous studies have shown that as children grow, they use more and more complex forms of ENPs mature until they reach about age 11, at which point their use of ENPs plateaus as curriculum emphasis changes from narrative to expository discourse. The present study extended the research to younger children and expands the normative data upon which clinicians can draw to make intervention decisions.
