Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare children's performance on tasks of language comprehension using three modes of presentation: (a) picture-identification tasks, (b) object-manipulation tasks, and (c) best-fit tasks. The 40 subjects were selected from several day care centers and a public elementary school in Watauga County, North Carolina. Each subject was tested individually for four grammatical structures, prepositions, uncontracted copulas, third person regular verbs, and contracted auxiliaries, using these three presentation modes.
