Hierarchical Disability in the Syntax of Aphasic Children.
Cromer, Richard F.
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v1 n4 p391-402 Dec 1978
Compares writings of aphasic and deaf children. While sentences produced by both groups were of comparable length, aphasic children produced a more restricted range of sentence types. Structures requiring embedding were less frequent among aphasic children. It is hypothesized that, as noted in other tasks, aphasic children have difficulties with hierarchically ordered material.
