Example text

Laing et al. (2002) confirmed a deficit in the pointing behaviour of infants with WS, despite relative proficiency at fine motor skills. Vocabulary acquisition, therefore, appears to rely on a different set of cues and constraints in WS. When Stevens and Karmiloff-Smith (1997) examined the constraints that older children and young adults with WS were using to learn novel words, these, too, appeared atypical. Relations between markers of semantic knowledge and productive vocabulary were also unusual in young children with WS.

The significance of lexical organization in grammar has broadened considerably as Chomskyan theory has evolved. g. Goldberg 1995; Tomasello 2003), we find the lexical instantiation of syntactic structures playing a central role. In what follows we will trace the increasing importance of the lexicon in grammatical theory, evaluate the relevance of a lexical perspective for tracking language impairment in Cantonese, and consider more generally the implications of an enhanced lexical perspective for the study of language impairment.

Our simulations focused on a cross-sectional developmental trajectory for the acquisition of regular, irregular, and novel verb past tense formation that we had generated from around 20 individuals with WS and 50 control children and adults (Thomas et al. 2001). These data indicated that individuals with WS exhibited a delay in the acquisition of the English past tense that was equal for regular and irregular verbs, but also a reduced tendency to generalize known inflectional patterns to novel verb forms.
