9780132582520: Language Development: An Introduction (Allyn & Bacon Communication Sciences and Disorders)

This leading and  comprehensive text on language development is rich in information, research, examples, and activities.

 

A thorough and readable introductory text on language development, this book covers all aspects of the complex subject — including syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, and pragmatics — while explaining each idea and concept in a way that is easily understandable by even beginning students of the field. Rich in pedagogical aids like discussion questions, chapter objectives, reflections, and main point boxed features, the eighth edition of Language Development also emphasizes culturally and linguistically diverse children and bilingual and dialectical developmental information — a discussion that accurately reflects the diversity of life and language in the United States.

Review:

“What I really like about the Owens text is that he goes into enough detail to make it a ‘meaty’ text for the serious student.” ?Margery Whites, St. Cloud State University

 

“The Owens Language Development text provides students with a wealth of current information. I have been satisfied with this text.” ? Barbara Weitzner-Lin, State University College of Buffalo

From the Back Cover:

As the most widely used text for introductory language development courses across the country, this comprehensive text allows students to understand every aspect of the discipline from a developmental perspective. Structured practically and chronologically, this text presents information in a highly readable manner for students. From language variations among children, new advances in linguistics and neurology, to the importance of literacy, the revised edition of Language Development: An Introduction includes expanded information regarding language development theories, bilingual and dialectical issues, and a unique emphasis on the constructionist perspective.

 

The eighth edition of this textalso includes a companion website that gives students a wealth of new tools for learning. The companion website includes interactive activities, sample test questions, links to helpful online resources, and extensive audio language samples of child language. The companion website can be found at:

New to this edition:

 

  • Chapter 2 “Describing Language” is completely revised, presenting a more contemporary theoretical perspective.
  • An updated companion website provides students with an online learning aid that reinforces the concepts covered in the text, links to helpful resources, and offers sample test questions.
  • Extensive pedagogical aids including chapter objectives, conclusions, discussion questions, and main point features help students learn concepts, retain information, and think critically about what they have read.
  • Bilingual and dialectal development is now discussed throughout the text rather than in a separate stand-alone chapter to emphasize the pertinence of bilingualism in the United States.
  • Important background information has been added to Appendices to help condense the chapters, increase readability, and highlight important information.
  • Research has been updated throughout the text so that the text reflects the most current research in the field
