Abstract
The study aimed to examine the effect of age and genders and their interaction in the production of two types of emotional words (basic and advanced). A total of 40 Cantonese-speaking children, age ranged from 5;06 to 8;06, were asked to produce emotional words after listening to a story scenario. Three way (gender x age x type of emotion) univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA) was carried out to analyze the main effect of these variables and their interaction. Children performed significantly better on basic emotional words and their ability grew with age. The main effect of gender effect was not significant. No interaction effect was observed among all the variables. These patterns were discussed with reference to the culture in Hong Kong and the experimental design. Clinical implications were also discussed.
