Published in 1975. This volume and it's companion seek to bring then current viewpoints to the fore and to give an idea of the latest thinking in various areas. It is not an attempt to survey fields, and was not to be used by the contributing authors as a forum to argue any particular case. The book provides many a summary statement on the most recent, important discoveries and issues in the area of language development. Thus it is clear that these two volumes will be useful particularly to those who are faced with practical decisions concerning language, including national language policy, language in the classroom, and language rehabilitation. 1.
