Gerken, LouAnn; McIntosh, Bonnie J.
Developmental Psychology, v29 n3 p448-57 May 1993

Results showed that children who did not produce articles in spontaneous speech were able to distinguish between sentences, verbally presented in picture identification tasks, that contained grammatical articles and those that contained ungrammatical articles.
