The consequence is that although the structure of the task domain paints a broad picture of task difficulty, the strengths and weaknesses of the computational learning system modulate this pattern.

Since many studies which have compared children with specific language impairment (SLI) and language-matched controls have found an age discrepancy of at least two years between the groups (see for example Wong, Leonard, Fletcher, & Stokes 2004), this suggests that schoolage children with SLI may still be operating with item-based constructions   Paul Fletcher, Stephanie Stokes and Anita Wong for transitivity. In requiring us to consider lexis and syntax together, and in requiring detailed consideration of progress towards abstraction, rather than assuming it from the outset, the constructional approach has consequences for our study of SLI.

Adding noise to processing or blurring the input). The adult system can tolerate noise because it already has an accurate representation of the knowledge, but loss of network structure leads to a decrement in performance since connections contain established knowledge. By contrast, the infant system can tolerate loss of connections because it can organize remaining resources to acquire the knowledge, but the infant system is impaired by noisy processing because this blurs the knowledge that has to be acquired.
