According to Lee (1971), during the past years, most research in the areas of language development has been concerned with the study of normal children. Nation (1972) reported that educators, speech pathol ogists, linguists, psychologists, and others have analyzed the structure of language, the development of language and the functions of language in human behavior. In the past, according to Nation, each discipline has tended to move in a particular direction without becoming aware of the research being done in other disciplines. Presently an increasing number of psycholinguists have been making use of the information from other disciplines, thus providing greater insight into the language pro cess.
