Abstract

ABSTRACT

To assess the relationships between simultaneous and successive processing and narrative speech, 60 3rd graders were administered measures of story recall and marker tests for simultaneous and successive processing. Two indices of complexity of syntactical organization loaded on the successive factor, while speed of speech output loaded on the simultaneous factor. The relationship between successive processing and syntactical complexity is consistent with predictions derived from A. R. Luria's (1966, 1973) psychological findings. The relationship between speed of speech output and simultaneous processing suggests that fluent story recall may be dependent upon the formation of a unifying gestalt embodying the relationships between different parts of the story.
