Title: Phonological Development: The Origins of Language in the Child
Written By: Marilyn May Vihman
Description:

This is the first book length survey of and introduction to the study of
the child's acquisition of phonology. It contrasts data-based
interactionist, cognitive models of phonological development with earlier
deductive behaviourist and structuralist accounts. Setting these models in
current neurophysiological perspectives, it integrates the flourishing
independent research areas of infant speech perception and vocal
production. The book traces the nature and timing of prosodic and segmental
development with due attention to evidence of individual differences and
from cross-linguistic studies. It describes the emergence of first words
and the first phonological system against the background of the child's
social and cognitive development in the first eighteen months.
