Individual Differences at 20 Months: Analytic and Holistic Strategies in Language Acquisition.
Bretherton, Inge; And Others
Journal of Child Language, v10 n2 p293-320 Jun 1983
Results of a statistical study of language in 30 infants suggest that two acquisition styles (nominal/pronominal and referential/expressive) are developing in parallel. Only for children heavily emphasizing one strategy can a distinctive style be determined. Results at 20 months were only partially predictive of performance at 28 months. (MSE)
