Patterns in Verb Use by Preschoolers with Normal Language and Specific Language Impairment.
Kelly, Donna J.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v18 n2 p199-218 Jun 1997
Preschoolers with specific language impairment (SLIs) and two groups of linguistically normally developing children described motion and change-of-state scenes while viewing a video, and patterns of verb use were analyzed. Although SLIs relied heavily on general all-purpose verbs, normally developing children used them more. SLIs made more verb use errors and produced more change-of-state verbs. (Author/MSE)
