Laing et al. (2002) confirmed a deficit in the pointing behaviour of infants with WS, despite relative proficiency at fine motor skills. Vocabulary acquisition, therefore, appears to rely on a different set of cues and constraints in WS. When Stevens and Karmiloff-Smith (1997) examined the constraints that older children and young adults with WS were using to learn novel words, these, too, appeared atypical. Relations between markers of semantic knowledge and productive vocabulary were also unusual in young children with WS.

Tomasello 2003: 99–100) On this view we would expect to find, especially at the early stages of a child’s learning of a language, a relatively unorganised system, even though there are several instances in the child’s speech of past tense marking, prepositions and transitive sentences. In relation to the latter, the evidence suggests that for children under three, the transitivity of these sentences is specific to the verbs which appear in them. Initially, what would within a LARSP analysis system be labelled SVO sentences do not yet deserve such an abstract label, but instead are item-based constructions which rely on the child’s knowledge of specific verbs.

Of course, pointing to the presence of deficits in a developmental disorder is somewhat tautological, but the comparison nevertheless raises the question that if genetic developmental disorders of language are to be characterized by initial selective deficits to language-relevant structures, why has compensation-to-recovery not occurred as it does in the individuals experiencing early focal lesions? The answer is that compensation in the developmental disorder probably has occurred, but the constraints of the system are insufficient to allow performance to develop to a level within the normal range (Mareschal et al.
