The Specificity of Environmental Influence -Home Environment Affects Korean-Chinese Children`s Early Language Development via Maternal Speech-
Hyo Jeong Jeon , Kwee Ock Lee , Hye Won Park
The hypothesis was tested that children whose families differ in socioeconomic status(SES) and educational level differ in their rates of productive language development because they have different language-learning experiences. Naturalistic interaction between mothers and their children was video taped. Transcripts of these interactions provided the basis for estimating the growth in children`s productive vocabularies and properties of maternal speech. The sixty children from age 1 to 3 were selected in Yanji, China. The results show that the high educated mothers` children grew more than the low educated mothers` children in their mean length of utterances. Properties of maternal speech that differed as a function of mother`s educational level fully accounted for this difference. Implications of these findings for mechanisms of environmental influence on child development are discussed.
Key Words: home environment, the specificity of environmental influence, maternal speech, language development
