    Derivational vs. Inflectional morphemes
    ONLY for bound morphemes

    Inflectional-plural, possessives, "est"-.suffixes
    -does not form a new word

    Optional Infinitive Stage
    A stage in early childhood (age 2-3) during which children sometimes include tense inflections on their main clauses and some time fail to include tense inflections in this context-producing infinitive verb forms instead

    part of normal development of morphology
  • kgiambruno
    Optional infinitives
    -main clauses require verbs to to be marked for tense

    -non-inflicted, infinitive verb forms are heard by child in dependent clauses
    -I dont want to go to the store
    -During this stage, children believe that marking tense in main clauses is optional

    they dont always change the tense, sometimes they do sometimes they dont

    Allomorphs
    any one of the possible phonetic forms of a morpheme

    which allomorph is used depends on the final sound of the word
    (sound changes based on root words)

    -plural markers can have the phonetic form of /s/ hats, /z/ cars, or watches /ez/
    -reg past -ed can have the phonetic form of talked /t/ rowed/d/. /ed/ painted

    Extended optional infinitive
    Clinical marker for specific language impairment (SLI)

    Children with SLI fail to progress beyond optional infinitive stage
    Normal OI to age 3
    SLI OI to age 8 or later (thus, extended) emerge in written language in adulthood)

    System is poorly organized
    -need lots of repetition/strategy to learn form and bypass system
  • kgiambruno
    SLI specific language impairment
    children with SLI have a myriad of very specific deficits in early language development

    -these deficits progress into more general learning deficits that affect all areas of academic performance

    -extremely complex disorder that is not well understood but seems to have genetic component


    Treat with repetition, various types of input, teaching strategies
  • kgiambruno
    Early Clinical Markers for SLI: Grammatical
    1) Deficits in verb morphology
    -past tense -ed
    -3rd person singular
    -copluar and auxiliary verbs forms (esp BE, HAVE, DO)
    2) Inappropriate assignment of case to pronouns
    -prefer object pronoun
    (Him bite me, her do it, me have it)

    3) Poor performance on non-word repetition tasks- can they repeat it?
    4)Poor performance on confrontation naming tasks-name the item/color etc
    5) demonstrate word finding difficulties in spontaneous speech
    -circumlocution-talking around what they say b/c of wording finding problems
    -overrelieance on all purpose vocabulary (N-stuff, thing, V-do)
  • kgiambruno
    Early Clinical Markers for SLI: Phonology
    Sound difference
    6)poor performance on phoneme discrimination task
    7) and phonological working memory-poor reading outcomes
    8)may or may not have concomitant phonological processing/articulation disorders
