An accessible introduction to language development aimed at a wideaudience of students from different disciplines such as psychology,behavioural science, linguistics, cognitive science, and speechpathology. It requires only minimal knowledge of psychology, and isintended for undergraduates from the second year of studiesonwards. The wide accessibility to undergraduates is achieved byavoiding technical terminology when possible and explaining allcrucial concepts in the text. From the first moment of life, language development occurs inthe context of social activities. This book emphasises how languagedevelopment interacts with social and cognitive development, andshows how these abilities work together to turn children intosophisticated language users—a process that continues wellbeyond the early years. Covering the breadth of contemporaryresearch on language development, Brooks and Kempe illustrate themethodological variety and multi-disciplinary character of thefield, presenting recent findings with reference to majortheoretical discussions. Through their clear and accessible style,readers are given an authentic flavour of the complexities oflanguage development research.With such research advancing at a rapid pace, LanguageDevelopment uncovers new insights into a variety of areas such asthe neurophysiological underpinnings of language, the languageprocessing capabilities of newborns, and the role of genes inregulating this amazing human ability.
