Abstract: The present study investigated (1) the developmental sequence postulated to exist between the processes of comprehension and production, and (2) the effects of syntactic (word order), semantic (animacy of subject and object), and extra-semantic (directional correspondence between verbal and visual sentence presentations, and task complexity) variables upon comprehension and production in the non-fluent child. Fifteen nursery school children grouped in terms of age and performance on the McCarthy (1972) Scales of Children's Abilities constructed puzzles corresponding to sentences during comprehension trials, and labeled preconstructed puzzles corresponding to the same sentences during production trials.
