Title: Kids' Slips
Subtitle: What Young Children's Slips of the Tongue Reveal About Language Development
Written By: Jeri J Jaeger
Description:

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 on-line processing is revealed in young children, ages 18
months through 5 years, through their slips of the tongue. Thus, this
volume 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 website 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.
