Language Development: An Introduction offers a cohesive, easy-to-understand overview of all aspects of language development, including syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, and pragmatics. Each idea and concept is explained in a way that is clear to even beginning students and then reinforced with outstanding pedagogical aids such as discussion questions, chapter objectives, reflections, and main point boxed features. Filled with real-world examples, the book looks at how children learn to communicate in general, and in English specifically, while emphasizing individual patterns of communication development.

The 10th Edition keeps readers up to date on major topics in the field and the challenges that teachers face in today's diverse classrooms. It provides more child language examples; improves readability with more thorough explanations and clarifications; includes updated research with the addition of several hundred new references; streamlines the discussion of reading comprehension; includes practical learning theories; and more.
