- Production Operations and the Use of Nonfinite Verbs by Children With Specific Language Impairment. Leonard, Laurence B.; Miller, Carol A.; Deevy, Patricia; Rauf, Leila; Gerber, Erika; Charest, Monique // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Aug2002, Vol. 45 Issue 4, p744
Recent evidence from structural priming studies suggests that children with specific language impairment (SLI) are more likely to produce verb morphemes such as auxiliary is when their previous sentence contained an auxiliary than when it did not. The same paradigm was employed in the present...
- Verb Learning in Children With SLI: Frequency and Spacing Effects. Riches, N. G.; Tomasello, M.; Conti-Ramsden, Gina // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Dec2005, Vol. 48 Issue 6, p1397
Purpose: This study explored the effect of frequency (number of presentations), and spacing (period between presentations) on verb learning in children with specific language impairment (SLI). Children learn words more efficiently when presentations are frequent and appropriately spaced, and...
- Relative Clause Gap-Filling in Children with Specific Language Impairment. Hestvik, Arild; Schwartz, Richard G.; Tornyova, Lydia // Journal of Psycholinguistic Research;Oct2010, Vol. 39 Issue 5, p443
Children with Specific Language Impairment (SLI) have been observed to have production and perception difficulties with sentences containing long-distance dependencies, but it is unclear whether this is due to impairment in grammatical knowledge or in processing mechanisms. The current study...
