Failure to produce object clitic pronouns is commonly seen as a marker of SLI in French. It is also common in children learning French as their second language. It is not clear if this marker can be used with bilingual children to diagnose SLI nor how accurate this measure is in general. On an elicitation task used with four groups of children (monolingual TD, monolingual SLI, bilingual TD and bilingual SLI) both bilingualism and SLI negatively affected production rates, but SLI had a stronger effect. Bilingualism did not however make the effect of SLI stronger. This marker can reasonably rule out a diagnosis of SLI but is not so good at ruling in SLI. Extra tests are therefore necessary for the diagnosis of SLI in French in both monolingual and bilingual populations.
