Title: First Language Acquisition
Written By: Eve V. Clark
Description:

Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

Babies are not born talking, they learn language, starting immediately from
birth. How does this process take place? When do children master the skills
needed for using language successfully? What stages do they go through as
they learn to understand and talk? Do the languages they learn affect the
way they think? This new edition of Eve Clark's highly successful textbook
focuses on children’s acquisition of a first language, the stages of
development they go through, and how they use language as they learn. It
reports on recent findings in each area covered, includes a completely new
chapter on the acquisition of two languages and shows how speech to
children differs by social class. Skilfully integrating actual data with
coverage of current theories and debates, it is an essential guide to
studying language acquisition for those working in linguistics,
developmental psychology and cognitive science.
