Morphosyntax. Brain structural studies indicate that the timecourse of maturation of anterior regions BA 44/45 is slow.

The few studies examining morphosyntactic processing in children with language impairment (some of whom are SLI) suggest deficient processing in left perisylvian cortex. Neville and colleagues found bilateral rather than the typical pattern of leftgreater-than-right anterior negativity to function words in reading sentences in gradeschool children with language learning impairments (Neville, Coffey, Holcomb, & Tallal, 1993). , 2000). The increased right hemisphere positivity may reflect greater use of semantic/discourse processing to compensate for poor left hemisphere function.

This method of study led to the view that major functions of language were primarily localized to the left hemisphere, and that two large brain regions, Broca’s area (roughly left inferior frontal cortex) and Wernicke’s area (roughly left posterior superior temporal cortex), were responsible for most language functions. Damage to Broca’s area led to deficits in production, such as articulation, sequencing of speech sounds, and sentence production, whereas damage to Wernicke’s area resulted in deficits of speech perception, and word and sentence comprehension.
