9780205394142: The Development of Language, 6th Edition

The sixth edition of The Development of Language covers language acquisition and development from infancy through adulthood. The sixth edition of this authoritative book is written and contributed to by leading researchers in the area of language development and acquisition. It is the ideal book for anyone interested in how children acquire language and how language develops across the life span. Syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, and pragmatics are thoroughly explored. It examines atypical development, presents strong coverage of individual differences, how and why they occur, and provides contemporary references and the most recent research findings. The panel of expert authors provides readers with cutting-edge research knowledge in an interesting and highly readable format. The emphasis on change over the life span is even more important now than it was when The Development of Language was originally published, since it reinforces current developments in cognitive neuroscience that indicate language, once acquired, is not static, but rather, undergoes constant neural reorganization.
