Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 528. Reviews the book, TALK: Teaching the American Language to Kids by R. B. Dever (1978). This work is divided into three major areas: (1) the grammar of English sentences, (2) an assessment procedure for analyzing the developmental status of children's language, and (3) the TALK teaching method, including lesson plans. It is impossible in a single text to provide comprehensive treatment of all the above-mentioned subject matters. Individuals who are unfamiliar with formal linguistic structure may have some difficulty integrating the material presented. In short, this book is an extremely valuable resource to speech-language pathologists, and individuals in related disciplines concerned with teaching the American language to kids.
