Evans, Julia L.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v34 n1-2 p39-54 Jan-Apr 2001
This article discusses current developments in connectionist modeling and the extension of principles of dynamical systems theory to cognitive and language development that have resulted in a new theory of language development known as emergentism. Specific language impairment is discussed within this emergentist view and preliminary implications are explored. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
