Abstract

In spite of the fact that fifty per cent of the children of the United States live in rural areas, little is found in scientific literature concerning their abilities. There seems to be some evidence that rural children develop differently in certain respects than do urban children. In so far as this is true the extension of generalizations to them from studies based on city children alone is questionable. It seems important, consequently, to find the differential aspects of development. The present paper is part of a comprehensive study of rural children. It is a report of one of several exploratory language tests to sound out areas in which there might be differential aspects in the development of rural children. In a study by Baldwin, Fillmore, and Hadley1 the authors pointed out that the rural children failed language items more frequently than non-language items on the Stanford-Binet Intelligence tests.
