Bound-Morpheme Generalization by Children with SLI: Is There a Functional Relationship with Accuracy of Response to Training Targets?
Snow, David P.; Kiernan, Barbara J.
Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v42 n3 p649-62 Jun 1999
This study, with 30 preschool children with specific language impairment (SLI) and 30 controls, found a dissociation between limited learning of training targets (words, affixed forms) and limited bound-morpheme generalization (BMG) performance. Results suggest limited BMG reflects problems not with storage or access of facts but with the extraction and extension of linguistic patterns in the learning targets. (Author/DB)
