From the Back Cover:

This is the first book length survey of and introduction to the study of the child's acquisition of phonology.

It contrasts data-based interactionist, cognitive models of phonological development with earlier deductive behaviorist and structuralist accounts. Setting these models in current neurophysiological perspectives, it integrates the flourishing independent research areas of infant speech perception and vocal production. The book traces the nature and timing of prosodic and segmental development with due attention to evidence of individual differences and from cross-linguistic studies. It describes the emergence of first words and the first phonological system against the background of the child's social and cognitive development in the first 18 months. Reviewing current studies of later development, the book discusses the role of vocabulary growth in the emergence of the segment, the early relationship of phonology and syntax, and the emergence of reading and spelling in relation to phonological sensitivity.
