The study of speech errors, or "slips of the tongue," is a time-honored methodology which serves as a window to the representation and processing of language and has proven to be the most reliable source of data for building theories of speech production planning. However, until Kids' Slips, there has never been a corpus of such errors from children with which to work. This is the first developmental linguistics research volume to document how online processing is revealed in young children, ages 18 months through 5 years, through their slips of the tongue. Thus, this text provides a new methodology and data source, which will greatly expand our ability to uncover the details of early language development. Professor Jaeger's groundbreaking book incorporates both details of her methodology and findings with implications for different aspects of language development, including phonetics and phonology, the lexicon, semantics, morphology, and syntax. While all the child data is included in the book, a Web site hosted by the author provides readers with the adult data as well. Kids' Slips targets those who study language development in linguistics, developmental psychology, and speech and hearing, as well as those who study language representation and processing more generally in the same disciplines.

...this is an insightful and excellently researched book...recommended reading. It has already become a really interesting contribution to the wide literature on developmental linguistics and psychology....The enormous amount of data (a total of 1,383 examples), which was collected between 1983 and 1992 is perfectly well-organized in 91 tables throughout the different chapters; figures and diagrams are also very helpful to clarify some points....it usually includes a summary and conclusions at the end of every chapter, this way she brings together all the most important ideas.

Without a doubt, Jaeger's book is a significant contribution to the field of psycholinguistics. The book is likely to stimulate new interest in the study of speech errors and revive interest in those who are already familiar with the topic....ideal to be used as the primary text for graduate-level courses.
The fruits of this long lasting enterprise are now available to the benefit of all.
Jeri Jaeger breaks important new ground in this detailed documentation and analysis of children's speech errors. The book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of both speech processing and language development.
