One might expect noncanonical syntactic constructions (such as passives or cleft constructions) to be poorly processed, since these are predominantly employed in service of emphasizing the topic of the sentence for the listener, that is, for pragmatic reasons.

2004) were also consistent with this differential effect. This pattern emerges in the model because reducing the initial computational resources produces a greater impairment in analyzing global information across sentences than in analyzing local information from individual lexical items. The consequence is that although the structure of the task domain paints a broad picture of task difficulty, the strengths and weaknesses of the computational learning system modulate this pattern. In sum, models of two different aspects of grammar acquisition demonstrate that some similarities between atypical and normal development are the consequence of the problem domain.
