The TNL is an easy-to-administer test that identifies language impairments, measures the ability to answer literal and inferential comprehension questions, measures how well children use language in narrative discourse, and serves as a natural complement to other standardized tests. Whereas most measures of children's language examine their knowledge of the components of language, the TNL assesses how well children use their knowledge of the components of language as they engage in functional discourse.
