- Résumé : This study examines age-related changes in oral narrative and expository discourse of 67 french school-children aged 3-10 years who elaborate a story from a short animated film and answer to why-questions. Length of utterances, number of clauses, words, speech segments, syllables, and speech rate were analysed using ELAN as an annotation tool. Our results show that aging increases quantity and density of informational content of both narratives and explanations. Older children score significantly higher than younger children on all measures of duration and informational content. Our results also show a gradual – but not statistically significant – increase of speech rate. We discuss these results in the light of cognitive and linguistic developpement.
