Abstract

This essay contends that forecasts could occur more frequently in descriptions of developmental language impairment and sentence comprehension issues (called as Developmental Language Disoreder/ DLD). Early normal and atypical language learning and processing was measured in relation to actions and europhysiological evidence. Because of this, Poor syntactic awareness is likely to impede syntax-based predictive processing in children with DLD, resulting in difficulties in understanding spoken sentences. Furthermore, there could be a reinforcement loop through which deficient syntactic knowledge impedes children's capacity to foresee future percepts, and this, in essence, renders children unable to develop their syntactic awareness dependent on prediction error signals.
