Van Der Lely, Heather K. J.
Journal of Child Language, v24 n1 p221-56 Feb 1997
Investigates the linguistic abilities of a subgroup of grammatical specific language impaired (SLI) children, focusing on the use of referential expressions in a narrative discourse and providing insight into the underlying nature of grammatical SLI. Findings support the hypothesized modular nature of grammatical SLI children's underlying linguistic deficit. (56 references) (Author/CK)
