Morphological Usage and Awareness in Children with and without Specific Language Impairment.
Smith-Lock, Karen M.
Annals of Dyslexia, v45 p163-85 1995
Seventeen children (ages 5-7) with specific language impairment (SLI) were compared to age-matched (AM) and language-matched (LM) groups on measures of metalinguistic skill. SLI children's performance was worse than AM peers and indistinguishable from younger LM children, suggesting that morphological awareness is more closely allied to oral language than general cognitive development.
