This book provides an introduction to language development that
differs from existing texts in that it traces language and cognitive
development (together with the associated debates) from babyhood,
through the school years of middle childhood and adolescence, into
adulthood and the world of work. Because the world trend is towards
learning to speak, read and write more than one language, this
comprehensive book includes descriptions and discussions of learning
more than one language sequentially and simultaneously.

Lingfield(s):	Anthropological Linguistics
		Language Acquisition
Written In:	English (Language Code: ENG)
