dc.description.abstract This thesis has examined the effects of socioeconomic status and linguistic development upon responses to Dwight Dean's Alienation Scale - an accepted social science research instrument.No significant correlations were found to exist between socioeconomic status and linguistic development and/or responses to the scale.A significant negative correlation was found to exist between linguistic development and responses to two out of three revised alienation subscales derived from the Dear, Scale.The thesis suggests that researchers must be wary of accepting current and future research instruments merely on the basis of reliability data. It also suggests that researchers must seek further understanding of the relationship between linguistic development and responses to social science research instruments.
