Subtitle: A Lifelong Process
Written By: Joseph A Foley
Edited By: Linda Thompson

Series Title: A Hodder Arnold Publication
Description:

This book provides an introduction to language development that differs
from existing texts in that it traces language and cognitive development
(together with the associated debates) from babyhood, through the school
years of middle childhood and adolescence, into adulthood and the world of
work. Because the world trend is towards learning to speak, read and write
more than one language, this comprehensive book includes descriptions and
discussions of learning more than one language sequentially and simultaneously.
