Comparing Adult and Children's Books

Annotated Research

Question: How are adult and children’s books different in style?

Answer: “Found that passages from children’s books had shorter paragraphs, sentences, T-units, clauses, and words, used more repetition and fewer abstract and Latinate words.” CC Anderson. 1984. P. 422.

Comment: Interesting but not surprising. RayS.
