Patterns of verb usage in Swedish children with SLI: an application of recent theories

Hansson, Kristina LU (1997) In First Language p.195-217
Abstract
Data from several languages, including Swedish, have shown that

children with specific language impairment (SLI) have particular

difficulties with verb morphology. In the present study, the verb

morphology of six Swedish children with SLI was further

explored in longitudinal and cross-sectional data. It was found

that the children with SLI had significant problems with the use of

auxiliary and modals, compared with younger MLU-matched

controls. Although the children with SLI omit auxiliary and

modals less frequently with increasing age, their levels of

omission are not compatible with their MLU levels. The results

are discussed with reference to... (More)
