[Xmca-l] Re: Psychology of Language



Jen, I used Mike's text for more than 15 years!  But it's a developmental text, and what I'm looking for now is a text that deals with the psychology of language. (The issue of why I'm writing my own developmental psychology text when Mike's exists is an interesting one, and one I've discussed at length with Mike.)

> Martin, have you seen Mike's text, The development of children? I'm using it for a course in a refugee camp, otherwise I really don't use textbooks, but the conditions in the camp are so fraught that a text seems best for the moment. It seems like quite a good start. I am using the 6th ed, the 7th is out, and the 6th has a few embarrassing typos, but ... this text or chapters from it may help. About your post on language, I really like Katherine Nelson's work, Young minds in social worlds. Just ideas here that you may already be aware of. Best to you - jen

It is (currently) titled "A Cultural Psychology of Children’s Development." But this is a new course that I need to get up and running quickly, so I think I need to start with an existing text. If one exists!
