ABSTRACT

Forty multicultural mothers' language skills, language characteristics and those of children's during 15 min. of free play were analyzed in terms of grammatical morphemes and MLU. The use of grammatical morphemes was low in multicultural mothers and the MLU of multicultural mothers was 3.53(.84) The MLU of children with multicultural mothers was 2.39(.79) which is low compared with that of Korean children. Mothers' language abilities and use of particle endings, suffix for a declinable word, suffix before endings was positively correlated with those of children's.
