Abstract: The purpose of this study was to compare the results of three language screening tests ("Tennessee Test of Appalachian Language," "Fluharty Preschool Speech and Language Screening Test," and "Florida Language Screening System") administered to nonstandard English speakers, using the following criteria: (1) length of administration time and (2) number of children who passed or failed the tests. From these data, an attempt was made to determine if the "Tennessee Test of Appalachian Language" is an appropriate screening tool when given to children who speak Appalachian dialect in western North Carolina.
