Parents' Report of Vocabulary and Grammatical Development of African American Preschoolers: Child and Environmental Associations.
Roberts, Joanne E.; Burchinal, Margaret; Durham, Meghan
Child Development, v70 n1 p92-106 Jan-Feb 1999
Examined how child and family factors influence individual differences in the language development of African-American children between 18 and 30 months of age. Found that vocabulary and utterance length increased linearly. Children from more stimulating and responsive homes had larger vocabularies, used more irregular nouns and verbs, and had longer utterances than children from less stimulating homes. (Author/KB)
