ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the representation of the diversity of orientation of three papers on language development and reading. The primary objective was to identify major models of language, to disclose their inherent assumptions and to review the pertinent literature to determine the extent to which hypotheses derived from the models had been tested. A decision was made to exclude models of adult language to concentrate on model of language development in children. Doris Entwisle of John Hopkins University was assigned specifically to review the current status of the field of sociolinguistics. The other two papers by Irene Athey and Ronald Wardbough deal exclusively with models of language acquisition.
