As in previous editions, Owens presents even the most complex, technical concepts at an appropriate level for beginning students. Developed within a practical chronological framework, the Seventh Edition examines every aspect of syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, and pragmatics. In recognition of the language variations among children, new advances in linguistics and neurology, and the importance of literacy, the Seventh Edition of this highly readable text devotes significant space to these areas as they impact our understanding of individual development. In addition, discussion of other cultures is included in the text wherever possible. Students of speech language pathology and practicing professionals.
