The social world of children learning to talk
This fascinating companion to the award-winning Meaningful Differences in the Everyday Experience of Young American Children reveals how daily child-parent social interactions govern children's language and social development.
Based on unparalled data from 2-1/2 years of observing the everyday interactions of 1- and 2-year-old children learning to talk in their own homes, Hart and Risley have charted the month-by-month growth of the children's vocabulary, utterances, and use of grammatical structures. The compelling narrative highlights reliability-tested research findings and is supplemented with numerous transcripts from observations and a list of 2,000 words of children's expressive vocabulary from 19-36 months of age.
This book is must-reading for professionals in speech and language, child development, psychology, and education who need to understand how children come to talk as much and as well as their parents and caregivers.

|display_description||Hart and Risley's unparalleled study took 1,300 hours over 2 1/2 years and involved 42 diverse families with young children. One book to examine the date and its implications just wasn't enough. This second volume retells the story of reliability-tested data in a fascinating account of how childen's practice of speech as shaped by family interaction affects learning to talk. This book charts the month-by-month growth in children's vocabulary, utterances, and use of grammatical structures and describes the ambient conversation and changing patterns of parent-child interaction as the children's contribution to those exchanges increases. Supplementing this narrative are transcriptions from observed interactons and an extensive appendix listing more than 2,000 words of children's vocabulary from 11 to 36 months of age. Integrating childen's practice with the language experience provided by their parents, this much-awaited volume reveals the pattern of the "social dance" of children learning to talk with their families.|
