Its features also derive from the social context: the social relationship and roles of its participants; their familiarity with one another; their shared history. These are not things that easily lead to standardisation. Indeed, most standardised linguistic assessments try to exclude or control these aspects of communication and the conversation that takes place between a subject and the tester is thus a Page 13 highly specialised one with special characteristics and constraints. Children often attempt to reinstate the more familiar conditions of conversation under testing conditions and use their conversational skills to override this artificial task.

Page 12 Standardised Tests With the exception of some more recent publications, for example Dewart & Summers (1988) and the Bristol Language Scales (Gutfreund, Harrison & Wells, 1989), which are not `tests' in the generally accepted sense of this word, there are few, if any, assessments that attempt to assess pragmatic aspects of communication. Thus we could not expect that most existing tests or procedures would capture the nature of pragmatic disabilities. Such methods that do exist have largely been described in journal articles (Prutting & Kirchner, 1987; Adams & Bishop, 1989) or broad analytical frameworks described in books, for example by McTear (1985).

This concerns the relationship between words at the level of the sentence and how this affects their meaning. The meaning of a sentence in adult language is derived from its grammar as well as on the meanings of individual words.
