92 5th graders (mean age 11 yrs 3 mo) were presented with a set of words and decided whether to not ask a question, ask a process-oriented question, or ask a product-oriented question in determining the meaning of a target word. Ss with little prior vocabulary knowledge asked more questions than did more knowledgeable Ss. Ss preferred process-oriented to product-oriented questions.
