Abstract : The present study aimed to investigate the emergence of expressive bound morphemes in 10 children, aged 3-8 years, with Specific Language Impairment (SLI) as compared to 10 chronological age (CA) controls. All the participants had a verbal repertoire of two-word phrases and were monolingual speakers of Malayalam. Expressive use of six different inflectional suffixes of Malayalam- 1./kaɭ/-Plural, 2./e/-Accusative, 3./il/-Locative, 4./uʈe/-Genitive, 5./kkə/ amp; /nə/-Dative case markers and 6./um/- Conjunction was examined using elicited Sentence Imitation Test in Malayalam (SIT-M) developed from our earlier research*. Results revealed that performance of SLI group was significantly (plt;0.05) poorer than the CA group, suggestive of underlying morphological deficits. However, both the groups exhibited relatively better scores on Locative /il/, Dative /kkə/ amp; /nə/ case markers and Plural /kaɭ/ than Conjunction /um/, Accusative /e/ and Genitive /u ʈ e/ case markers. Implications for morphological assessment and treatment in Specific Language Impairment are also discussed.Copyright of Journal of the All India Institute of Speech Hearing is the property of All India Institute of Speech Hearing and its content may not be copied or emailed to multiple sites or posted to a listserv without the copyright holder's express written permission.
