9780205627523: Born to Talk: An Introduction to Speech and Language Development (5th Edition)

In a new fifth edition that offers exciting expansions and updates, Born To Talk continues to provide college students of all levels with a contemporary and comprehensive view of speech and language development in a reader-friendly and interactive manner. Structured to reflect the actual development of language in a child, this engaging text introduces readers to research-based information on the nature of human communication, theories of language and cognitive development, the anatomy and physiology of speech, milestones of language and literacy, cultural and linguistic diversity in language acquisition, and speech and language disorders.

 

The new revised fifth edition of Born To Talk includes up-to-date research on the impact of parent-child interactions, language samples from one child across the first three years, and emergent literacy in preschool.  The revision also expands on the acquisition of the sound system and brings an integrated perspective of childhood language disorders through case examples.

 

  • New research is covered throughout the book regarding the impact of parent-child interactions, language samples from one child across the first three years, and emergent literacy in preschool.
  • An expanded section on the acquisition of the sound system helps readers better understand a vital aspect of language development.
  • New case studies found throughout the text provide students with real-life examples of childhood language disorders.

      

    "I was thrilled to find Born to Talk to use as a text for my undergraduate language acquisition course and as a supplement for my graduate early literacy course.  The book is challenging for students, but as scholarly as it is, it is also interesting and makes the study of language acquisition come alive for the students." Margaret Coxwell, Minot State University
