I would appreciate any suggestions about where I could find child

Thanks for your help!

Message 2: Maternal input and cognition

Subject: Maternal input and cognition

Given that most research on caregiver talk to young children has been 
focusing on the question whether and how input facilitates language 
development, I wonder if there is any literature on the relationship 
between maternal input and the development of concepts such as space and 
time. Even if it might be difficult to prove such a relationship in 
terms of facilitation, the question should certainly be asked what kind of
concepts children are confronted with in the language they listen to daily.

Any hint concerning literature dealing with maternal language in relation 
to cognitive and semantic development - especially in the domains of space
and time - is welcome.

Thank you in advance,

Thora Tenbrink
