Bought 17 Mar 2007 – Swinging Pig bookshop in Kings Heath

A wonderful book on child language acquisition, a litte bit old now but still completely valid. For all his huge output of books (especially recently), Crystal is a very engaging writer, with just enough personal details about his children and his research being introduced into the text. The text itself is down to earth and includes lots of ideas for how to study your child’s language. Fascinating.
