Summary

The sixth edition of The Development of Language, written and contributed by leading researchers, covers language acquisition and development from infancy through adulthood.

This authoritative text is ideal for courses that take a developmental approach to language acquisition across the life span. The text thoroughly explores syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, and pragmatics. It examines atypical development, presents strong coverage of individual differences, describes how and why they occur, and provides contemporary references and the most recent research findings. The panel of expert authors provides students with cutting-edge research knowledge in an interesting and highly readable format.

The emphasis on change over the life span is even more important now than when the text was originally published, since it reinforces current developments in cognitive neuroscience that indicate language, once acquired, is not static, but rather, undergoes constant neural reorganization.
