ABSTRACT
An investigation of sociolinguistic factor s related with the expres sive vocabulary ability of normal children may contribute to the intervention program of language improvement . In this study , we conducted Korean -Ver sion Boston Naming T est (K- BNT ) on 395 nor - mal children to measure their expressive vocabulary ability . T heir sociolinguistic factor s are also explored u sing parent survey sheet s . The 17 sociolinguistic factor s included were the father s age, the father s education level, the father s vocation , the mother s age, the mother s education level, the mother s vocation , the number of siblings , parent s per - ception s of the children s linguistic development and the degree of articulation development , the children s literacy , the main caretaker , the number of books read to a child, and handednes s. T he result s showed that the parent s age, education levels , and vocations were significantly related with the children s expressive vocabulary ability . In addition, such factor s as the parent s perceptions toward their child s linguistic development and the degree of articulation development , children s literacy , and number of books read to the children were also found to be important . T he aforementioned significant factor s may be categorized into two groups , that is, parent s - related factor s (parent s age, education levels, and vocation s ) and language- related factor s (parent s perception s of the children s linguistic development and the degree of articulation development , children s literacy , and the number of books read to a child). T he findings of the present study may be meaningful in that we can utilize these language- related factor s in language inter - vention programs.
