Investigating grammatical complexity in Gulf Arabic speaking children with specific language impairment (SLI)
The definitions of SLI and the various theories put forward to account for the deficits seen in this population of Gulf-Arabic speaking children are discussed, and two experiments investigating syntactic and phonological complexity in GA speaking children with SLI are reported on.
Spesifieke Taalgestremdheid En Taalwetenskaplike Teorie: 'N Evaluerende Oorsig
Alhoewel spesifieke taalgestremdheid (STG) nie 'n nuwe studieveld is nie, is die ontwikkeling van teoretiese verklarings vir STG wel 'n relatief onlangse fokus binne hierdie veld. Tans is daar twee…
The use of subject–verb agreement and verb argument structure in monolingual and bilingual children with specific language impairment
- Linguistics, PsychologyClinical linguistics & phonetics
Findings indicate that subject–verb agreement and verb argument structure are both affected in SLI, but not more severely in bilinguals than in monolinguals.
Three Myths from the Language Acquisition Literature
- Linguistics, PsychologyThe Analysis of verbal behavior
In this paper, introductory comments on the nature-nurture distinction are offered (including interactionism, and the nativists’ claim to have found a gene for language).
Genetics of language
The first data from molecular genetic studies showing association between gene variants and language disorders (specific language impairment, speech sound disorder, developmental dyslexia), the biological function of these genes are discussed, and the more general question of how the human genome builds a brain that can learn a language is reviewed.
Language features in a mother and daughter of a chromosome 7;13 translocation involving FOXP2.

T and B's pattern of relative strengths and weaknesses across their cognitive and language performance was found to be similar to descriptions of the affected KE family members who have a mutation within FOXP2.

A Grammatical Specific Language Impairment in Children: An Autosomal Dominant Inheritance?
- PsychologyBrain and Language
The results are consistent with a genetic basis underlying Grammatical SLI: the pattern of impairment in the SLI probands' relatives is consistent with an autosomal dominant genetic inheritance and the gene does not appear to be sex-linked.

Abstract The production of regular and irregular past tense forms was investigated among the members of an English-speaking family with a hereditary disorder of language. Unlike the control subjects,…
Common Genetic Variants in FOXP2 Are Not Associated with Individual Differences in Language Development
- BiologyPloS one
It is concluded that while genetic variants in FOXP2 may be significant for rare forms of language impairment, they do not contribute appreciably to individual variation in the normal range as found in the general population.
