Summary

";I would like to thank the authors for writing one of the best books available for the course that I teach. I would like to encourage them to continue updating and expanding the book so that it remains the premier text for speech and language development courses, particularly at the undergraduate level."; -Bertha Smith Clark, Middle Tennessee State University ";This is a very good introductory level book."; -Robert Ackerman, East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania ";The pedagogical features are one of the many things I really like about Born to Talk. The chapter objectives are great for giving students a mental outline before they start reading the chapter. The review questions at the end of the chapters hit on the key points and are a great study tool for students. The tables and charts supplement the text very nicely and highlight key points."; -Ellen Stubbe Kester, The University of Texas at Austin Highlights of the New Edition bull; bull;A new chapter, ";One Tongue Two or More Languages,"; thoroughly addresses the issue of bilingualism, a topic often under represented in competing language development texts. bull;Chapter 10-";Speech and Language Disorders";-has been condensed to present information on phonological, voice and fluency disorders in a basic fashion. bull;Four new tables have been added to visually supplement the text (Chs. 1, 6 and 8). bull;References have been updated throughout the text, insuring currency and accuracy of information. bull;Substantive changes have been incorporated to the contents of many chapters to keep the text up-to-date and competitive in the speech and language development discipline (Chs. 1-6 and 8). bull;Chapter 8-";Language Diversity: Regional, Social/Cultural, and Gender Differences";-now contains a section on Asian English, a new ";hot topic"; in language texts. bull;Inclusion of information on the anatomy and physiology that supports speech, language, and hearing in human beings has been moved from the body of the book to a supportive role in the Appendix.
