Language in Children provides a concise and basic introduction for students studying child language acquisition for the first time. Starting from the first sounds a child produces, this book covers all the stages a child goes through in acquiring a language. This title:

  • Illustrates developmental stages from the recognition of sounds and words to the ability to hold a conversation, also covering bilingual upbringing and language disorders;
  • Features real-life examples of all the phenomena discussed, from languages such as French, Spanish and Portuguese as well as English;
  • Incorporates guidance on sources for further reading and exploration by chapter;
  • Is supported by a companion website that includes exercises with links to real-world data in the CHILDES archive.

Written by an experienced author and teacher, Language in Children is essential reading for students studying this topic.
