Example text

Some patients 13 14 INTRODUCTION Brain and Language lose the ability to recognize sounds or colors or familiar faces while retaining all other functions. A patient may not be able to recognize his wife when she walks into the room until she starts to talk. This suggests the differentiation of many aspects of visual and auditory processing.

Her drawings of humans resembled potatoes with stick arms and legs. Yet, in a sentence imitation task, she both detected and corrected grammatical errors. Laura is but one of many examples of children who display well-developed grammatical abilities, less-developed abilities to associate linguistic expressions with the objects they refer to, and severe deficits in nonlinguistic cognition. In addition, any notion that linguistic competence results simply from communicative abilities, or develops to serve communicative functions, is belied by studies of children with good linguistic skills, but nearly no or severely limited communicative skills.

The Autonomy of Language (SLI). Only their linguistic ability is affected, and often only specific aspects of grammar are impaired. Children with SLI have problems with the use of function words such as articles, prepositions, and auxiliary verbs. They also have difficulties with inflectional suffixes on nouns and verbs such as markers of tense and agreement. Several examples from a four-year-old boy with SLI illustrate this: Meowmeow chase mice. Show me knife. It not long one. An experimental study of several SLI children showed that they produced the past tense marker on the verb (as in danced) about 27 percent of the time, compared with 95 percent by the normal control group.
