Main Title: The grammatical characterization of developmental dysphasia

Abstract: This paper deals with child-language-acquisition disorders in the area of grammar, and it presents some of the results from our research study on developmental dysphasia in German children. An attempt is made to characterize dysphasia in terms of a selective deficit of an otherwise normal linguistic system. It is argued that dysphasic children have problems in establishing agreement relations in grammar. As is shown for various grammatical phenomena, such as word order, inflectional morphology, word classes, and types of constituents, this condition accounts for the structures which are blocked in dysphasia as well as for those which are still accessible to the children.
