Plurals in SLI: Prosodic Deficit or Morphological Deficit?
Language Acquisition, v7 n2-4 p247-84 1998
Two accounts for the segmental and prosodic anomalies observed in plurals produced by five adults with specific language impairment (SLI), one prosodic and one morphological, are compared. The prosodic account proposed is that the grammars of these individuals do not tolerate extraprosodicity: indirect licensing by the prosodic word. (Author/VWL)
