Specialists in various aspects of language development describe how children acquire language and how language develops over the life span from what the fetus hears prenatally to what happens to language in the aging brain. Their topics include learning sounds and sound patterns, learning the meanings of words, communicative competence in the preschool years, the implications of individual differences for studying language acquisition, atypical language development, and language and literacy in the school years. The book is intended as a text for a graduate or upper-level undergraduate course in language development or as readings for courses in psycholinguistics, cognition, developmental psychology, speech pathology, and related subjects.
