Roseberry, Celeste A.; Connell, Phil J.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n3 p596-603 Jun 1991
The study found differential learning rates in a group of bilingual children (ages four to six) with limited English proficiency (LEP) when they all were taught an invented morpheme. The language-impaired children in the group learned the morpheme at a slower rate than the nonimpaired children. Results have implications for identifying language impairment in LEP populations.
