- This paper reports on a study of the effects of context on Korean children's comprehension of SOV and sentences. Consistent with the results reported by Otsu (1994) for Japanese, it was found that a simple lead-in sentence improves comprehension scores for OSV patterns. However, there is some indication that this context may actually interfere with the interpretation of SOV structures.
