Detection of Irregular Verb Violations by Children with and without SLI.

Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, v44 n3 p655-69 Jun 2001
Fifty-seven children (ages 5-8) with and without specific language impairment (SLI) participated in judgment and elicitation tasks designed to evaluate their understanding of irregular verb forms. Differences between SLI and control children were observed in their productions and relative levels of sensitivity to infinitive errors in finite positions. Implications for children's morphophonological and morphosyntactic development are drawn. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
