An Examination of the Morpheme BE in Children with Specific Language Impairment: The Role of Contractibility and Grammatical Form Class.
Cleave, Patricia L.; Rice, Mabel L.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v40 n3 p480-92 Jun 1997
Production of the morpheme BE was studied among 22 children (ages 4-5) with and without specific language impairment (SLI). Contractible contexts were produced more accurately than uncontractible contexts by both groups, and there were no significant interactions between language status and contractibility. Copula forms were produced more consistently than were auxiliary. Groups did not differ in proportion or type of non-omission error. (Author/PB)
