Specific Language Impairment in Italian and English: Evaluating Alternative Accounts of Grammatical Deficits.
Bortolini, Umberta; Leonard, Laurence B.; Caselli, Maria Cristina
Language and Cognitive Processes, v13 n1 p1-20 Feb 1998
Children with specific language impairments (eight learning Italian, eight learning English as a first language) were studied for grammatical deficits. Italian-speakers used noun inflections, verb inflections, copula forms more than English-speaking counterparts, matched by utterance length. Articles were used similarly. Results were consistent with processing accounts, one based on morphological richness, one on durational properties of grammatical morphology. (Author/MSE)
