When 16 children (ages 5-7) with specific language impairment (SLI) and 16 typical children named age-appropriate objects, the SLI cohort made more naming errors. Drawings and definitions of error items were poor. Eleven participants with SLI who participated in a forced-choice recognition task demonstrated significantly lower performance on erroneous targets.
