Description

Places language play at the centre of parent-child interaction, and demonstrates that it is crucial for language learning. Shows how children’s phonological play makes way for more complex forms of play with structure and semantics. Examines the most radical form of linguistic play, literary nonsense, and focuses on its obsession with list-making and classification.
