Learning and Generalization Components of Morphological Acquisition by Children with Specific Language Impairment: Is There a Functional Relation?
Swisher, Linda; Snow, David
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v37 n6 p1406-13 Dec 1994
Twenty-five children with specific language impairment (SLI) and 25 children with normal language (NL) were presented with novel vocabulary and bound-morpheme learning tasks. SLI children had significantly lower vocabulary learning levels and less ability to generalize bound morphemes than NL children. Results support the storage/access but not the rule-induction theory of SLI. (Author/DB)
