Title: Understanding Child Language Acquisition
Written By: David M. Singleton
Lisa Ryan
Description:

How children acquire their first language is of great interest to linguists
because it may give insight into the nature of language. "Understanding
Child Language Acquisition" offers an accessible introduction to first
language acquisition for undergraduates and takes a cross-linguistic,
typological slant that is particularly relevant and desirable in language
acquisition studies.
