 Abstract:
 
 This volume brings together work by scholars with backgrounds in
 linguistics, psycholinguistics, developmental psychology, education, and
 language pathology. As such, the book adds psycholinguistic and
 crosslinguistic perspectives to the clinical and classroom approaches that
 have dominated the study of "later language development". Incorporating
 insights from prior language acquisition research, it goes beyond preschool
 age to consider both isolated utterances and extended discourse,
 conversational interactions and monologic text construction, and both
 written and spoken language use from early school-age across adolescence.
 Data from French, Hebrew, Spanish, and Swedish as well as English cover
 varied domains: morphology and lexicon, syntax and verb-argument structure,
 as well as peer interaction, spelling, processing of on-line writing, and
 reading poetry. The epilogue suggests explanations for the findings
 documented. Across the book, the authors show how cognitive and social
 maturation combines with increased literacy in the path taken by
 schoolchildren and adolescents towards the flexible deployment of a growing
 repertoire of lexical elements in varied morpho-syntactic constructions and
 different discourse contexts that constitutes the hallmark of maturely
 proficient language use.
