Links between Early Temperament and Language Acquisition.
Dixon, Wallace E., Jr.; Smith, P. Hull
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v46 n3 p417-40 Jul 2000
Investigated relationships between language acquisition and temperamental attentional control and positive affectivity in toddlers. Found that language development was associated positively with adaptability and soothability, mood and smiling/laughter, and persistence and duration of orientation. Findings suggest that temperament may influence language through attention and positive emotionality, which may depend on temporal proximity to the learning setting. (Author/DLH)
