Growth in Language Power as Related to Child Development


by Dora V. Smith - 1944

Language is the instrument of thought and of communication. The child's power to grasp, to enter into, and to reflect upon the experiences he has is dependent to a large degree upon his facility in the use of verbal symbols. Conversely, as his experience is broadened and deepened, language symbols acquire meaning for him, and further growth and learning become possible to him. Also, it is through language power that he is able to express his own thoughts and emotions, to share vicariously in those of others, and to participate in the life of his social group.
