A Farsi sentence-repetition task was created that included structures organised into three levels of complexity from least to most complex. Twenty typically developing Farsi-English bilingual children between the ages of 6;3–11;6 were recruited from Farsi schools in Toronto, Canada. Significant differences on the participants’ performance among the three levels were found with the lowest performance in the most complex sentences and the highest performance in the least complex ones. Specific structures appeared to be more challenging than others within each level of complexity. The children’s decreasing performance with increasing complexity and the evidence that specific structures are challenging within each level make the Farsi sentence repetition task a promising tool for assessing the language skills of Farsi-English speaking children.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-05-27T13:36:57Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Sentence Repetition in Farsi-English Bilingual Children</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Marinis, Theodoros</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Kazemi, Yalda</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Komeili, Mariam</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Tavakoli, Parvaneh</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2020-04-30</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Kazemi, Yalda</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
