Andersen, Elaine S., Comp.
Thirty-one papers and reports dealing with recent work on language input to children are listed in this annotated bibliography. The annotations, which are descriptive rather than evaluative, summarize the design of each study, the nature of the data, and some of the results and conclusions. Entries by P. Broen, J. Bynon, L. Cherry, J. M. Crawford, O. K. Garnica, M. Holzman, K. Drach, B. Kobashigawa, C. Pfuderer, D. Slobin, M. Lewis, R. Freedle, J. R. Phillips, H. L. W. Remick, V. Ruke-Dravina, J. S. Sachs, R. Brown, R. Salerno, C. E. Snow, and E. C. Traugott deal mainly with the nature of input language. Entries by D. H. Dodd, P. D. Glanzer, and C. B. Farwell are reviews of literature on language input. Works by B. C. Blount, C. A. Ferguson, J. L. Fischer, and R. Klein are cross-cultural comparisons. E. Andersen, C. Johnson, J. B. Gleason, J. Sachs, J. Devin, M. Shatz and R. Gelman deal with the acquisition of "mothers' speech" as a sociolinguistic skill. Other entries by B. Friedlander, E. Newport, R. Scollon, C. E. Snow, and J. Wertsch deal with the relation of input language to language acquisition. (Author/AM)
