Abstract: This study examined student responses to those items from the Test of Syntactic Abilities- (TSA) which assess, complementation. The students who formed the sample had hearing threshold levels (HTL) of 90 dB or greater in the better ear. They ranged in age from 8 to 19 years. Students' responses were analyzed in terms of syntactic errors rather than correct responses. The primary purpose of this study was to determine if the students' responses indicated any consistent syntactic deviancies. The results proved inconclusive. Limitations and implications of this research are discussed.
