Clarifying the Phonological Processing Account of Nonword Repetition
Bowey, Judith A.
Applied Psycholinguistics, v27 n4 p548-552 2006
Individual differences in nonword repetition (NWR) show a particularly strong association with vocabulary acquisition for both first- (L1) and second-language (L2) learners, and they serve as a behavioral marker for specific language impairment (SLI) in children (Gathercole, 2006). However, this association is susceptible to alternative explanations.
