Lexical Comprehension and Grammatical Deficits in Children with Specific Language Impairment.
Clarke, Michele G.; Leonard, Laurence B.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v29 n2 p95-105 Mar-Apr 1996
A study of J. Locke's theory of specific language impairment (SLI) found that children (n=10) with SLI who were limited to single-word utterances showed deficits in their lexical comprehension, supporting Locke's proposal. A second study found that children with SLI who had reached the grammatical stage of development showed age-appropriate lexical comprehension, not supporting Locke's proposal. (Author/DB)
