Sample text

While vocabulary sizes did not vary much at 15 months, the amount of time infants devoted to joint object play with their mothers did; the range was from 12% to 77% of the 10-min mother condition. If attending to objects with mothers supports early communication, then it is reasonable to expect that those infants who devote relatively more time to joint engagement might have larger vocabularies 3 months later. To assess the predictive power of variation in infant joint engagement, we did a multiple regression analysis.

Our observations, although mostly ata qualitative level and dealing with only two subjects, seem to confirm this outline, showing the usefulness of studying the interaction of social and cognitive abilities for the construction of an integrated model of development. F. , Dore, 1974), only recently have they begun to explore the acquisition ofthese gestures and to inquire into the role they may play in children's transition to early verbal communication. Bruner (1975a) and Bates and her colleagues (Bates, Camaioni, & Volterra, 1975; Bates, Benigni, Bretherton, Camaioni, & Volterra, 1977; 1979) have emphasized the functional continuity between pre linguistic and initial linguistic signaling, suggesting that young children's early communicative intentions are expressed gesturally before they can be encoded in conventional verbal symbols.

However, this investigation has provided a detailed account of the pattern of development common to the gestural performance of four children. It has documented the elaboration of the children's rudimentary communicative skills from the emergence of simple gestures produced in isolation to their progressive mastery of the production and coordination of two or more simultaneous signals addressed to another person. This progression followed a sequence starting with gesture plus vocalization, continuing through gesture plus divergent gaze, and culminating in gesture plus gesture and gesture plus conventional verbalization.
