Dissertation Abstract:

Dissertation title in Spanish:
Medidas del desarrollo sintáctico en adolescentes almerienses: hitos
descriptivos y aportes metodológicos

In my dissertation I investigated the effects of several social factors
(such as course level, social class, sex, type of school and area of the
school) on various measures of syntactic development for adolescent native
written language, some of them commonly used in this kind of research,
other new ones that I designed. The results showed that social class
together with the course level had the strongest effects over most of the
syntactic indexes used, showing quite statistically significant results. In
addition, a study of regression showed that social class and are of the
school were contributing together in producing most of their effects. Other
relevant findings pertained to the methodology to be followed; in
particular, the results provide new reasons to use the rewriting method of
elicitation, and new indexes to reflect the importance of errors when
measuring syntactic development.
