Lexicality and frequency in specific language impairment: accuracy and error data from two nonword repetition tests

Article English OPEN
Jones, G; Tamburelli, M; Watson, SE; Gobet, F; Pine, JM;

Purpose: Deficits in phonological working memory and deficits in phonological processing have both been considered potential explanatory factors in Specific Language Impairment (SLI). Manipulations of the lexicality and phonotactic frequency of nonwords enable contrasti... View more
