McGregor, Karla K.; Leonard, Laurence B.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v37 n1 p171-81 Feb 1994
Children with specific language impairment (SLI) and their normally developing (ND) peers imitated proper nouns, the pronouns "he" and "you," and the article "the" in subject phrases. Both groups showed significantly more omissions of the function words than the proper nouns. A phonological explanation of subject article and pronoun omission is explored. (DB)
