Summary

In the third edition of Born to Talk: An Introduction to Speech and Language Development , development is traced through real time with attention to how the various components of language are integrated in a single child's journey to adult language. This book has been used by majors and nonmajors, by undergraduate and graduate students. This text provides a comprehensive view of speech and language development written in a reader-friendly manner. In addition to a real-time presentation of speech and language development, the book contains information on theories of language development, cognitive development, the anatomy and physiology of speech, language diversity, and communication disorders. It also includes revised sections on African American English, Hispanic English, cultural diversity in the public schools, adolescent and adult language, and a much expanded section on fluency disorders.
