Constructivist approach (Goldberg, 1995; Tomasello, 2003) considers that analogical reasoning is a cognitive process which underlies the abstraction of the linguistic forms and the construction of more abstract linguistic schemas. When children hear two utterances such as “John eats an apple” and “She sees a bird”, they can infer the abstract schema [Subject Verb Object] by realizing analogies between the two utterances. Morphosyntactic disorders encountered by children with specific language impairment (SLI) could be caused by problems with analogies, what would hinder their abstraction of construction schemas. Consequently, children with SLI would be less productive with their language and would use more fixed linguistic forms. Owing to these problems of generalization, the morphosyntactic development of children with SLI would be slow down [less ▲]

This paper presents the adaptation of the LARSP (Language Assessment, Remediation and Screening Procedure) (Crystal et al., 1976) from English into French based on the analysis of a corpus of French speaking children ranging between the ages of 18 months and 5 years. Included is a description of particularities of French morphosyntax and the ensuing adaptations that are reflected on the new French LARSP (F-LARSP) chart. The LARSP is a linguistic profile commonly used by researchers and clinicians to carry out “comprehensive and consistent linguistic analysis” (Ball, 1999); more specifically a detailed analysis of the grammar and morphology of children’s spontaneous language samples. The profile was developed in a manner that allows the user to clearly see the child’s grammatical strengths and weaknesses in relation to their chronological age. This is made possible by the notion that the order in which syntactic structures are acquired is relatively stable, at least until the approximate age of 5. Correlation of a child’s morphosyntactic production to their age provides the therapist with vital information regarding an array of areas including the possible diagnosis of language impairment, remediation planning, and measuring treatment efficacy carried out since the last profiling session. The tool is therefore useful for professionals working with children who are suspected of or who have been diagnosed with having forms of language difficulties such as Specific Language Impairment (SLI) where morphology and syntax are commonly affected. The utility of the LARSP, originally designed for Anglophone use, has led to its adaptation to several other languages. Those which have been published for an international audience include Welsh (1988), Dutch (1987), Irish (1990) and Persian (1998). [less ▲]

Les troubles spécifiques de développement du langage (TSDL), dont les formes sévères sont appelées dysphasies, sont caractérisés par un développement lent et anormal du langage. Par définition, les enfants ayant ce type de trouble ne doivent pas présenter d’autres déficits attestés qu’ils soient cognitifs ou neurologiques. Il existe de nombreux profils développementaux de TSDL qui peuvent évoluer au cours de leur développement, ce qui les rend difficiles à caractériser. L’origine des TSDL est actuellement inconnue et les nombres études sur le sujet sont parfois contradictoires. Nous avançons un ensemble de propositions cliniques et théoriques pour remédier à ces difficultés : • Les TSDL sont un nom générique pour trois types de troubles clairement différenciés : la dyspraxie développementale verbale, la dysphasie linguistique , et les troubles pragmatiques du langage. • Il n'existe pas une cause unique pour les TSDL. Au contraire, chaque TSDL est la conséquence de la présence chez l’enfant d’une conjonction de déficits de base. • Chaque TSDL est le résultat d'un déroulement anormal du développement du langage. Ces anomalies apparaissent lorsque plus d'une partie du système est déficiente et que les mécanismes naturels de compensation du système deviennent inefficaces. • Les phénomènes de compensation sont eux-mêmes des phénomènes langagiers et de ce fait ils interfèrent avec l'évaluation langagière proprement dite. Pour comprendre le fonctionnement cognitif et langagier dans sa complexité, il est nécessaire pour le diagnostic et la prise en charge d’utiliser une évaluation de capacités sous-jacentes non-langagières. • Les bases neurologiques plausibles du langage et de son développement doivent être prises en compte pour offrir de nouvelles hypothèses et thèmes de recherche pour le travail futur sur les TSDL.

The Construction and Usage-based Theory (CUT) combines two main approaches drawn from cognitive linguistics: construction grammar and usage-based theory. The CUT emphasizes the fact that language structures progressively emerge through the use of general cognitive processes. Most new forms produced by a child are built upon his/her own previous productions that he/she complexifies and generalizes to construct more abstract forms. These hypotheses have been tested with normally-developing children but have not yet been tested on children with specific language impairment (SLI). In this paper, we put forward several hypotheses drawn from constructivistic approaches to explain morphosyntactic difficulties displayed by children with SLI. Their goal is to create a theoretical framework for future behavioral studies. [less ▲]

Specific Language Impairment (SLI) is a disorder characterised by slow, abnormal language development. Most children with this disorder do not present any other cognitive or neurological deficits. There are many different pathological developmental profiles and switches from one profile to another often occur. An alternative would be to consider SLI as a generic name covering three developmental language disorders: developmental verbal dyspraxia, linguistic dysphasia, and pragmatic language impairment. The underlying cause of SLI is unknown and the numerous studies on the subject suggest that there is no single cause. We suggest that SLI is the result of an abnormal development of the language system, occurring when more than one part of the system fails, thus blocking the system’s natural compensation mechanisms. Since compensation also hinders linguistic evaluation, one possibility for diagnosis and remediation control is to assess basic cognitive abilities by non-linguistic means whenever possible. Neurological plausible bases for language and language development should also be taken into account to offer new hypotheses and research issues for future work on SLI. [less ▲]

In a previous study, Parisse suggested that subject dislocations in French language (e.g. "la fille elle dort") could be considered as a marker of morphosyntactic development in children with normal language development. The present study aimed to develop this proposition and to confirm it with experimental data, more specifically the fact that this development would go through a four-step process. Our prediction was that children could produce forms that correspond to successive steps in the developmental process (for example, forms [1] and [2], or [2] and [3]), but not forms that were very different (for example, forms [1] and [4], or [2] and [4]). In order to test this hypothesis, a sentence repetition task was administrated to 27 children aged 4 to 5. The results confirm the presence of a developmental trend in the use of dislocation in spontaneous language. At age 4, dislocations were frequent (30%), and tended to respect the gender (stage 3 and 4). At age 5, dislocations were rare (stage 4). Previous stages (1 and 2) would be observed in younger children. [less ▲]

Background. This study investigated the relationship between phonological and syntactic disorders of French-speaking children with SLI in production. Aims. This article compares three theories (pure phonological theory, surface theory and mapping theory) of language developmental disorders, all of which view phonological difficulties as the main reason for the children’s problems. Methods and procedures. The linguistic parameters (salience, phonological complexity, syntactic complexity, lexical/functional, semantic/syntactic) (that are fundamental) to these theories were identified. The validity of these parameters was then tested against the phonological and syntactic results obtained by children with SLI and control children. Nine syntactic categories were tested. Outcomes and results. Phonological complexity was the only parameter whose importance was confirmed, and this was only for phonological results. Syntactic complexity did not correlate significantly with children’s difficulties, and the importance of phonological salience was not confirmed for French-speaking children. Mixed results were obtained for the other parameters, including negative correlations, which may call for different explanations. Conclusions. No theory fully explained the observed outcomes. Pure phonological theory was the most parsimonious, but could not explain all the results. [less ▲]

Maillart and Parisse found out that French children with specific language impairment (SLI) presented strong difficulties in phonology when compared with normally-developing children matched by MLU (NLD). Some of the youngest children from this study were followed to provide developmental information about their language deficit. Children were tested again in the same way as before (free spontaneous production) and matched by MLU against other NLD children. The previous phonological analysis was extended to include syntax as well as phonology. Percentage of words correct was computed for both phonology and syntax. An analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was performed with children's age as covariate. Results showed a significant difference between SLI and NLD children for phonology but not for syntax. There was a trend that showed that the difference between SLI and NLD children tended to increase with age. The same analysis was performed separately for 9 frequent syntactic categories for phonology and for syntax. A significant difference was found for prepositions, nouns, subject pronouns, and verbs in phonology. Effects were found for determiners and prepositions in syntax. As well as confirming the importance of phonological difficulties in SLI, our results call for a developmental theory of phonological and syntactic deficits in SLI, where differences between SLI and NLD grow with age and where there is a timing difference between phonology (earlier) and syntax (later).

Background: This study investigated the phonological disorders of Frenchspeaking children with specific language impairment (SLI) in production. Aims: The main goal was to confirm whether children with SLI have limitations in phonological ability as compared with normally developing children matched by mean length of utterance (MLU) and phonemic inventory size. A number of researchers have obtained findings pointing in this direction, but the conclusions have never been tested on French-speaking children. The second goal was to find out whether characteristic features of the French language are reflected in the nature of the children’s phonological disorder. Methods & Procedures: The spontaneous language of 16 children with SLI and 16 control children matched on MLU and phonemic inventory size (normal language development group) were analysed using different measures bearing on utterances, words, syllables and phonemes. In both SLI and NLD groups, the children were distributed into two different subgroups based on their MLU, with controlled phonemic inventory size. Outcomes & Results: The results supported a specific limitation in the phonological abilities of French children with SLI, as has already been demonstrated for English, Hebrew, Italian and Spanish-Catalan. However, two unexpected results were also obtained. First, a significant difference between children with SLI and control children could only be found for older children (MLU.3), not for younger children with MLU,3. This was true for all measures. Conclusions: This finding highlights the importance of having a developmental perspective and needs to be confirmed through a longitudinal study. Second, deficits were much more significant at the phoneme level than at the syllable level. This may be explained by the fact that the pronunciation of syllables in French is very homogenous, making them easier to segment. [less ▲]

This study investigated the phonological expressive disorders of Frenchspeaking children with SLI. The main goal of this paper was to confirm whether children with SLI have limitations in phonological ability even when they are compared with normally-developing children matched by MLU and phonemic inventory size. This was demonstrated by Bortoloni and Leonard (2000), Orsolini et coll. (2001), and Aguilar-Mediavilla et coll. (2002), which obtained the most detailed results in this direction, but it was never tested in French language. The second goal of the paper is to find out whether the characteristics of the French language are reflected in the nature of the children’s phonological disorder. In order to test this, the spontaneous language of 16 children with SLI and of 16 control children matched on MLU and phonemic inventory size (NLD group) was analysed using different measures bearing on utterances, words, syllables, or phonemes.

This was true for all measures. This finding stresses out the importance of having a development perspective and has to be confirmed with longitudinal design. Secondly, deficits were much more important at the phoneme level than at the syllable level.

Children’s morphosyntactic disorders have been studied extensively over the past few years, but mostly in English-speaking children. Recent data on French-speaking children are presented in the current article. There are three key-periods in morphological development : (1) language emergence ; (2) beginning of morphosyntax ; (3) later development. Different morphosyntactic features correspond to each of these periods in the language production of SLI children. The difference between language delay and language disorder is difficult to tease apart in young children. However, as children grow older, it becomes possible to identify characteristics that are specific to children with language disorders and others that are specific to French-speaking SLI children.
