For undergraduate courses in language development for pre-service/early childhood majors or child development majors.

This text efficiently combines theory, research, and practice to provide a solid foundation for understanding language development from birth to age eight. It focuses on supplying readers with a basic understanding of the phonetic, semantic, syntactic, morphemic, and pragmatic aspects of language knowledge acquired by young children and the ways in which this acquisition process can be enhanced in early childhood settings. Acquisition of knowledge of written language is also included as part of children's language development.
