Description

Some children can hear and can speak, yet have trouble understanding or producing utterances.

In this accessible introduction to children's language difficulties, Shula Chiat explores the stumbling blocks which lie behind their struggle.

The uniqueness of this book lies in its focus on individual children, the extensive and intriguing examples which illustrate their problems, and the step-by-step search for the source of those problems.

Difficulties with words, verb structures, function morphomenes, and meaning are examined and illustrated by detailed case studies.

This book provides a clear overview of what children with language difficulties say and do, and introduces a logical approach to identifying children's language problems.

It will be welcomed by students and researchers of linguistics, language development and language disorders; teachers of language-impaired children; and speech and language therapists.
