Maternal input and cognition
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
Given that most research on caregiver talk to young children has been
focusing on the question whether and how input facilitates language
development, I wonder if there is any literature on the relationship
between maternal input and the development of concepts such as space and
time. Even if it might be difficult to prove such a relationship in
terms of facilitation, the question should certainly be asked what kind of
concepts children are confronted with in the language they listen to daily.
Any hint concerning literature dealing with maternal language in relation
to cognitive and semantic development - especially in the domains of space
and time - is welcome.
Thank you in advance,
