How Children Learn Language

Product description

Published 2012.

Slight wear to cover. No highlighting/ notes to pages.

Within three years of birth, children acquire several thousand words, they figure out how to build and understand complex sentences, and they master the sound system of their language. How do children learn language? How can they be so good so fast? In this engaging and accessible book, the author provides a highly readable overview not only of the language acquisition process itself, but also of the ingenious experiments and techniques that researchers use to investigate this mysterious phenomenon.
