Overview

In a new fifth edition that offers exciting expansions and updates, Born to Talk continues to provide students of all levels with a contemporary and comprehensive view of speech and language development in a reader-friendly and interactive manner. Structured to reflect the actual development of language in a child, this engaging text introduces readers to research-based information on the nature of human communication, theories of language and cognitive development, the anatomy and physiology of speech, milestones of language and literacy, cultural and linguistic diversity in language acquisition, and speech and language disorders.

The revised edition of Born to Talk includes up-to-date research on the impact of parent-child interactions, language samples from one child across the first 3 years, and emergent literacy in preschool. The revision also expands on the acquisition of the speech sound system and brings an integrated perspective of childhood language disorders through case examples.

Language acquisition, communication development from birth to two years, physiological basis of speech, etc.
