BACKGROUND Children with specific language impairments (SLI) repeat nonwords less accurately than typically developing children, suggesting a phonological deficit. Much work has attempted to explain these results in terms of a phonological memory deficit. However, subsequent work revealed that these results might be explained better as a deficit in phonological sensitivity. AIMS This study used a nonword repetition task to examine how children with SLI extract phonological regularities from… CONTINUE READING
