Clearly written, well organized, and comprehensive, Language Development is the most widely used text in its field. In recognition of the tremendous language variations among children, the Sixth Edition of this highly readable book devotes significant space to individual developmental differences and cultural differences. Discussion of other cultures is included in the text wherever possible. In addition, the sections on culturally linguistically diverse children accurately reflect the realities of everyday life in the United States. Developed within a practical chronological framework, the Sixth Edition examines every aspect of syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, and pragmatics. As in previous editions, Owens presents even the most complex, technical concepts at an appropriate level for beginning students.
