Sample text

Because TTR is known to be sensitive to sample size variation, truncated samples of the middle 100 and 200 words were obtained, and each was subjected to the three analyses. This procedure, similar to that of Watkins and colleagues (1995), allowed for a more equitable comparison of TTR, NDW, and D. If these measures are each performed as originally intended (restricting sample size for TTR and NDW, and using whole samples for D), they should be strongly correlated with each other. RESULTS Relationships among D, NDW, and TTR Pearson correlations were performed to determine the possible relationships among D, NDW, and TTR.

The most likely reason for this difference is that Watkins and colleagues truncated samples by utterances rather than words. One limitation of the present study is that the language samples obtained for analyses are relatively small. Hess et al. (1986), for example, have made the case that a minimum of 350 words are needed for reliable computation of TTR, at least for analyses of preschool children with normal language. Despite this limitation, however, findings and implications of the present study are important for at least two reasons.
