Abstract:

The chapter presentations examine language development across a
variety of populations of children, from those with Specific Language
Impairment to second language learners. The chapter contributors
discuss criteria for the definition of SLI, compare and contrast SLI
with profiles of children with other disorders and dialects, and offer
a comprehensive look at the Whole Human Language, which ties together
spoken and sign languages.

Methodological concerns that affect the credibility and
generalizability of the findings are discussed and controversies
between opposing linguistic approaches to language acquisition are
presented.

The conceptual thread that gradually reveals itself as the chapters
unfold is a theoretical issue of central importance to cognitive
theory, as well as to our understanding of the biological correlates
of language´┐ŻEuro"the variability that linguistic competence can take
in children as they develop.

Language Competence Across Populations: Toward a Definition of
Specific Language Impairment is an essential volume for advanced
students and scholars in linguistics and psychology who have an
interest in language acquisition and language disorders, as well as
for the clinical professionals dealing with children with language
impairments
