Abstract: The current study investigates past formation in Standard Greek (SG) and Cypriot Greek (CG) measuring the associated morphophonological salience and its effects on SLI grammars. Elicited production of real and pseudo verbs was carried out with SLI and TD groups from each variety . Results show that phonological salience of past formation affects SLI but not TD performance. Between varieties, the GR/SLI group performs better than CG/SLI group with real verbs. We attribute this finding to the difference in the status of the augment in each variety.
