Sharp, Kathryn M; Gathercole, Virginia C. Mueller – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2013

O'Toole, Ciara; Hickey, Tina M. – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2013
Diagnosing specific language impairment (SLI) in monolingual children is a complex task, with some controversy regarding criteria. Diagnosis of SLI in bilinguals is made more complex by the lack of standardized assessments and poor understanding of clinical markers in languages other than English. There is an added complexity when one of the…

Spoken narratives in English and Chinese were elicited from 30 9-year-old…

Reuterskiold, Christina; Van Lancker Sidtis, Diana – Child Language Teaching and Therapy, 2013
This study explored retention of idioms and novel (i.e. newly created or grammatically generated) expressions in English-speaking girls following exposure only once during a conversation. Our hypothesis was that idioms, because of their inherent holistic, nonliteral and social characteristics, are acquired differently and more rapidly than novel…

Spontaneous language samples are a useful tool in studying the nature of morphosyntactic production in both clinical and academic settings. However, little work has been done on typical frequency of occurrence of morpheme production and even less on the degree of temporal reliability of morpheme frequency between samples. This study compares two…

Using a psycholinguistic framework to investigate her single…
