Abstract

The purposes of this study were four: (1) to measure the writing abilities in a group of subjects; (2) to measure the willingness of those subjects to accept certain sentence-like utterances as grammatical--their grammatical judgments; (3) to determine whether the subjects' acceptance of those utterances will occur in a range of scores; and (4) to correlate the subjects' scores on the two factors to determine the extent to which they are related.
