Example text

Once children can combine words into more complex sentences there is often a rapid expansion, both in the size of their vocabulary and in their overall language skills. They are now learning to use language in a variety of ways: to ask and answer questions, to give and get information, to protest and to discover new words. These pragmatic uses of language began much earlier, when the child learned to use sounds, gestures and words to draw the attention of others to objects and events of interest, to obtain desired objects or help, and to protest or attract attention.

Initially, they learn about objects by putting everything into their mouths, but gradually they learn to drop, give, wave them, bang them together, and so on. Eventually, these strategies become more complex; the spoon is put into the cup, the blanket is piled up on top of the teddy and pillow. Objects can now be picked up, as well as dropped, and small items can be held one in each hand at the same time. Some of these actions are learned by accident; others are learned by watching and participating with others in daily routines like eating, bathing or dressing.

Ingram (1989) has a detailed discussion of this topic. Other sources of information about the sequence of skills that emerge as language develops include studies of early language in small samples of children, such as those reported by Bloom (1970), Brown (1973), Halliday (1975; 1979) and Bates (1976). Useful data can also be found in large-scale surveys of emerging language skills in children who are developing normally. Information of this latter type is often reported in standardized tests of child development that cover aspects of language, such as Knobloch, Stevens and Malone (1980), Uzgiris and Hunt (1989) and Harrison et al.
