ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to identify longitudinally the continuity and stability of maternal verbal behavior, and the relationship between maternal verbal behavior and infant's vocabulary in early infancy. The total of 48 mothers and their infants were participated in this study. At 6 months and again at 10 months, dyads were videotaped at free play in laboratory room and at home. Data on mother's verbal behavior derived from transcripts of spontaneous speech from the play and categorized based on Hart and Risley(1995), and data on infant's vocabulary were measured from MCDI-K. Results were as follows: first, mother's verbal interactional behaviors and language input showed stability of individual variation across ages. Second, mother's verbal behaviors were increased as infant's age increased. Finally, mother's verbal interactional behaviors showed partially the significant correlation with infant's vocabulary at 15 months.
