Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the activities, cognitive development, and learning progress of Ricky when he was between 17–18 months old. Though Ricky still had limited linguistic skills at this stage, he increasingly used his language to interact with others in ways that provided opportunities to learn about himself and other people. The toddler's behaviour can be summed up as a charming panache of mismatches between levels of cognitive, social, and linguistic knowledge.

Keywords: linguistic skill; social skills; cognitive knowledge
