Clearly written, well organized, and comprehensive, Language Development is the most widely used text in its field.

In recognition of the tremendous language variations among children, the Sixth Edition of this highly readable book devotes significant space to individual developmental differences and cultural differences. Discussion of other cultures is included in the text wherever possible. In addition, the sections on culturally linguistically diverse children accurately reflect the realities of everyday life in the United States. Developed within a practical chronological framework, the Sixth Edition examines every aspect of syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, and pragmatics. As in previous editions, Owens presents even the most complex, technical concepts at an appropriate level for beginning students.

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

Highlights of the Sixth Edition

  • Chapter 3, “Child Development,” has been streamlined to include only the child development information most relevant to speech and language development.
  • Updates to Chapter 4, “Neurolinguistics,” include the latest in brain imaging information to convey key links between anatomy, physiology, cognition, and language, and the roles these links play in the development of language abnormalities.
  • Chapter 5, “Cognitive and Perceptual Bases of Early Language,” has been totally rewritten to reflect our rapidly changing knowledge of cognitive development and the newest research in brain imaging.
  • The new edition includes increased coverage of literacy development, cultural and linguistic difference and sensation, perception and cognition relative to language processing.
