Book Information


Title: Understanding Child Language
Written By: Paul Fletcher
Series Title: Understanding Language

How children acquire their first language is of great interest to linguists because it may give insight into the nature of language itself. This text offers an accessible introduction to first language acquisition for undergraduates. As part of the Understanding Language series, it will also have a cross-linguistic, typological slant that is particularly relevant and desirable in language acquisition studies.
