From the Back Cover:

Research on child language is an interdisciplinary enterprise, uniting the efforts of psychologists, linguists, computer scientists, educators, neuroscientists and communication scientists. In selecting representative readings from this broad and fast-moving field, the editors of this collection have emphasized recent papers that illustrate the contribution of child language research to developmental cognitive science.

Although the authors of these papers represent a broad spectrum of theoretical perspectives, there is a deliberate bias in favor of an interactive, rather than nativist, approach. Essential works on the major milestones of language development are provided, followed by tutorials that stress the neural substrates of language development, pieces on computational models of language learning, and on genetic contributions to developmental language disorders. Some papers have been updated or specially commissioned for this collection. The volume avoids jargon and is designed to be accessible to upper level students across a range of disciplines.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Bates is Professor of Psychology and Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of California, San Diego, where she also directs the Center for Research in Language and the Project in Cognitive and Neural Development. She is a visiting scholar on a regular basis at the National Research Council Institute of Psychology in Rome. She has authored or co-authored more than 150 papers and nine books, including most recently, Rethinking Innateness (1996).

Michael Tomasello is Co-Director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. His previous publications include Primate Cognition (1997), The New Psychology of Language: Cognitive and Functional Approaches to Language Structure (1998) and The Cultural Origins of Human Cognition (1999).
