Muthoni is 18 months old and is just beginning to talk. She can say a few recognizable words and can vary her intonations to indicate if she is asking a question or making a statement. At this time, last year Muthoni’s statements included ma ma ma……….. ba ba ba…………… upon saying this her mother would respond there is “mama” and there is “baba” as if answering a “conceived” question from Muthoni. Although Muthoni still makes such sounds, her ability to say recognizable words is a source of amazement to her Baba and Mama. It is an indication of a major development in Muthoni’s language. Children make major accomplishments in language during early childhood. In this lesson, I will describe the language developments that take place in infants and toddlers.
