Etude des productions langagières d'enfants âgés de 17 à 41 mois et issus de quartiers défavorisés : Evaluation des capacités langagières des sujets selon l'âge.

Abstract : The current study focuses on language production in young French children during a free play session with an adult. Children aged 17 to 41 months who start using speech produce a lot of gesture-word combinations. The role of those multimodal combinations has been studied for Italian and English children but we know very little about the bimodal communication of young French children. Our first goal is to analyse the verbal, gestural and bimodal language production of French children and investigate the role played by gesture-word combinations in language development. Our second goal is to observe the verbal production according to age and to an index of general syntactic use: the mean length of utterance (MLU). Results do not support the existence of a “two-word speech period” and show that age is not a good predictor of language development for children with low socio-cultural level.
