Communicative Intent in Late-Talking Toddlers.
Rescorla, Leslie; Merrin, Lisa
Applied Psycholinguistics, v19 n3 p393-414 1998
Investigates communicative intent in 31 toddlers who were slow to talk and 32 normally developing toddlers matched on SES, age, and nonverbal cognitive ability. Communicative intent was studied during free play, both with the mother and with an unfamiliar examiner. Late talkers relied more on nonword vocalization, gestures, and gesture/oral combinations than their normally developing peers. (Author/JL)
