Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“I would like to thank the authors for writing one of the best books available for the course that I teach. I would like to encourage them to continue updating and expanding the book so that it remains the premier text for speech and language development courses, particularly at the undergraduate level.”
Bertha Smith Clark, Middle Tennessee State University

“This is a very good introductory level book.”
Robert Ackerman, East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania

“The pedagogical features are one of the many things I really like about Born to Talk. The chapter objectives are great for giving students a mental outline before they start reading the chapter. The review questions at the end of the chapters hit on the key points and are a great study tool for students. The tables and charts supplement the text very nicely and highlight key points.”
Ellen Stubbe Kester, The University of Texas at Austin

Highlights of the New Edition

  • A new chapter, “One Tongue – Two or More Languages,” thoroughly addresses the issue of bilingualism, a topic often under represented in competing language development texts.
  • Chapter 10—“Speech and Language Disorders”—has been condensed to present information on phonological, voice and fluency disorders in a basic fashion.
  • Four new tables have been added to visually supplement the text (Chs. 1, 6 and 8).
  • References have been updated throughout the text, insuring currency and accuracy of information.
  • Substantive changes have been incorporated to the contents of many chapters to keep the text up-to-date and competitive in the speech and language development discipline (Chs. 1-6 and 8).
  • Chapter 8—“Language Diversity: Regional, Social/Cultural, and Gender Differences”—now contains a section on Asian English, a new “hot topic” in language texts.
  • Inclusion of information on the anatomy and physiology that supports speech, language, and hearing in human beings has been moved from the body of the book to a supportive role in the Appendix.

If you're buying this as a textbook, you likely don't have a choice of whether to buy it or not - you're just looking for the best price. But let me tell you, this is not a fun book to read. It may be a great resource, but the chapters are very long, and sometimes filled with minutiae that makes the reading even harder to follow. I like my texts a little on the "dry" side with just the information needed to know, and little "dialogue" between reader and authors. This one has way too much dialogue and it wastes my time trying to get the core information. In a word, wordy. Me no likey.

I only gave this product 1 star because I never received the product, so how can I rate it. I have e-mailed the owner 2 times and never received a reply back. So, therefore I would suggest not to order from this supplier. I am out my $79.98. I had to spend more money and get the book from the campus bookstore.
