Bottari, Piero; Cipriani, Paola; Chilosi, Anna Maria; Pfanner, Lucia
Language Acquisition, v7 n2-4 p285-315 1998
Presents data that challenge the view that the omission of functional categories by children with specific language impairment is a manifestation of the same immaturity characterizing the grammar of young children without impairment. Data include atypically high omissions or even almost total absence of determiners in the speech productions of a group of 11 Italian children affected by either expressive/receptive or expressive-only SLI.
