Oral Language Skills of Children with Defective Articulation Oral language achievement was studied in 100 matched subjects, half with defective articulation and half with normal speech. The following language scores were derived from the language samples: mean length of response, structural complexity score, mean of the five longest responses, number of different words, type-token ratio, and standard deviation ...

Oral language achievement was studied in 100 matched subjects, half with defective articulation and half with normal speech. The following language scores were derived from the language samples: mean length of response, structural complexity score, mean of the five longest responses, number of different words, type-token ratio, and standard deviation of response length. Only the structural complexity score yielded significant differences between groups.
