Functional Categories in the Grammars of Children with Specific Language Impairment.
Leonard, Laurence B.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n6 p1270-83 Dec 1995
Examination of the spontaneous speech of 10 English-speaking children (ages 3 to 5) with specific language impairment revealed evidence of the functional categories of determiner, inflection, and complementizer. However, compared to younger children with comparable mean utterance lengths, these children showed lower percentages of use of many grammatical elements associated with these functional categories.
