Title: The Cambridge Handbook of Child Language
Edited By: Edith L. Bavin
Description:

The best survey of the subject available, The Cambridge Handbook of Child
Language brings together the world's foremost researchers to provide a
one-stop resource for the study of language acquisition and development.
Grouped into five thematic sections, the Handbook is organized by topic,
making it easier for students and researchers to use when looking up
specific in-depth information. It covers a wider range of subjects than any
other handbook on the market, with chapters covering both theories and
methods in child language research, and tracing the development of language
from pre-linguistic infancy to teenager. Drawing on both established and
more recent research, the Handbook surveys statistical learning, the
cross-linguistic study of language acquisition, pre-linguistic development,
and topics in semantic, pragmatic and narrative development, bilingualism,
sign languages, specific language impairment, language and autism, Down
Syndrome and Williams Syndrome. The field of child language research is
multi-disciplinary: the book will be an essential reference for students
and researchers working in linguistics, psychology, cognitive science,
speech pathology, education and anthropology.
