The Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) provided descriptive data on the speech and language of 25-month-olds. Findings indicated great range in the stage of expressive language development achieved. Girls showed more advanced skills than boys. A clear pattern was identified in use of sound classes. Child verbal comprehension and expressive stage related to pretend play, turntaking in games, word/sound imitation, and nursery rhyme singing. (Author/KB)
