Example text

Some children seem to use more general object labels first, whereas others are more interested in social activities and the regulation of another’s behaviour. These differences can frequently also be observed in their carers (Dore, 1978). ’The latter are often uttered in a continuous stream with the appropriate intonation but the individual words unintelligible. ’, this interest is focused on only one aspect of language use, namely, expressive language skills. Of equal importance is the child’s acquisition of receptive language or the skills needed to listen to and comprehend language.

At about this time, infant attention begins to shift to a focus on the semantic rather than the pragmatic content of adult communication, leading to an increase in the size of the lexicon (Hoff and Naigles, 2002). The ’responsiveness’hypothesis states that the purpose of adult speech is to involve the child in a conversational framework which allows for the child’s immature skills.

Some time between 4 and 7 months they begin to distinguish between a happy and a sad face on the same model (Nelson, 1987) and between 7 and 10 months they are able to distinguish between positive and negative expressions on different people (Ludemann, 1991). There is also evidence that from an early age, infant development is influenced by contingency (an action that is conditional on a preceding action), reciprocity (mutual giving and receiving) and communication in their carers. For example, in situations where stimulation is non-contingent (an action that is not conditional on a preceding action), infants’ motivation to interact with others is reduced and their ability to recognize adult intentions impaired (Muir and Hains, 1999).
