9781412902328: Child Language: Acquisition and Development

The acquisition of language is a staggering feat, yet one that all typically developing children manage by the time they reach school age. Child Language: Acquisition and Development presents the latest thinking and research on how children acquire or develop their first language, written and developed in a manner that will be stimulating and interesting for a range of undergraduate students.

The reader is encouraged to adopt a critical stance throughout and weigh the evidence for themselves. Key features for the student include:

  • boxes and exercises to foster an understanding of key concepts in language and linguistics;
  • a glossary of key terms; suggestions for further reading;
  • a list of useful websites at the end of each chapter;
  • discussion points for use in class;
  • and separate author and subject indexes.

Child Language: Acquisition and Development is an indispensable textbook for undergraduate students in Psychology, Linguistics, Education and Childhood studies.
