Language development : form and function in emerging grammars by Lois Bloom( Book )

40 editions published between 1968 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research reported is part of an investigation into the acquisition of grammar, using nonlinguistic information from situational and behavioral context to analyze the development of linguistic expression. Three children were seen for approximately 8 hours, every 6 weeks, in their homes, from the age of 19 months--soon after the earliest occurrence of two-word constructions. Each sample of spoken language was obtained during (1) play with a selected group of toys, (2) eating, dressing, and toileting, and (3) play with a peer. The language of one of the children was described in terms of 'pivot grammar' with linear relationship between constituents and specification of a small class of forms which occurred in pivotal constructions with a large class of lexical constituents. In contrast, the grammars of the other children exhibited an hierarchical structure with constituents derived from more than one node in a phrase-marker representation. For all three children, negation appeared as one of the first syntactic structures with identifiable semantic function; negative sentences could be classified as signalling nonexistence, rejection, or denial.

Language development and language disorders by Lois Bloom( Book )

28 editions published between 1975 and 1988 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a synthesis of research findings in normal language development as well as a practical approach to the evaluation and treatment of children with language disorders. Its 21 chapters are divided into six topical sections: language description, normal language development, deviant language development, goals of language learning based on normal development, correlates of language disorders, and facilitating language learning. Each chapter concludes with a summary and a list of suggested readings. The book includes appendixes that set forth conventions for transcription of child language recordings and video recorded data, present definitions of language content categories, and list instruments for assessing language and language-related behaviors. An extensive bibliography of related resources and author and subject indexes are also provided. (Gw)
The transition from infancy to language : acquiring the power of expression by Lois Bloom( Book )

25 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and Spanish and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this important volume, Lois Bloom brings together the theoretical and empirical work she has carried out on early lexical development. Its focus is on the expressive power children acquire as they begin to talk and, in particular, on contributions from cognitive development, affect expression, and the social context for making the transition from prelinguistic expression to the expression of contents of mind. The first half of the book reviews the developments in infancy that enable the emergence of language and presents the theoretical perspective required for an understanding of the longitudinal study described in the second half. The book's main thesis is that language is acquired for expressing contents of mind and that its usefulness as a 'tool' is of only secondary importance. The Transition from Infancy to Language makes a major contribution to our knowledge of early lexical development, providing a persuasive theoretical model for researchers and students
Language development from two to three by Lois Bloom( Book )

23 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of studies on child language development between ages 2 and 3 is presented. The studies, originally published between 1970 and 1989, are the result of a longitudinal research program. An introductory section describes the contents, offers background information on several different perspectives (developmental, learnability, cross-cultural) in language acquisition research, and outlines some conceptual themes (meaning in child language, context and child language, cognition and child language, individual differences, centrality of verbs) appearing in the studies. The first group of papers consists of studies of simple sentences and includes the acquisition of constituent structure and meaning relations and three kinds of complexity in simple sentences: negation, verb inflection, and wh- questions. The second section consists of the studies of complex sentences, including acquisition of syntactic connectives and clausal meaning relations, complementation, and complex sentences that express causality. The two papers in the third section pertain to process and interaction in language development. One is a study of role imitation in learning words and constituent structure; the other is a study of contingency in discourse. Four of the children studied appear in all the studies, and six others appear in one or two studies. (Mse)
