dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate oral word usage by children ages four years six months to five years old. The word lists presented in this thesis were constructed from a database supplied in Spoken Words: Effects of Situation and Social Group on Oral Word Usage and Frequency by W. S. Hall, R. L. Linn, and W. E. Nagy, 1984, Hillsdale, New Jersey: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Publishers. A sampling of words culled from utterances produced by 39 children ages four years six months to five years old from Black and White Middle Class and Black and White Working Class preschoolers were included. A list of words common to and used most frequently by all four groups was constructed. This list includes a total of 98 words presented in alphabetical order. This information is useful for constructing speech and language tests and speech and language materials for preschool-age children. en_US
