ABSTRACT
The paper seeks to focus on certain issues emerging from a developmental psycholinguistic study that has dealt with an exploratory inquiry into the development of communication. The study is largely based on the data pooled from the investigator's own daughter at the 4 + span of development of first language acquisition. The study shows that the Storytelling is an ideal routine for the child's acquisition of information about language. Since the child has limited basis for generating utterances, then certain requirements are placed on the child's social environment if the strategy is to be successfully exploited. These include recurrence of the situation and identification of this recurrence. A major motivation for this comes from the fact that studies of child communication have brought into focus such a domain will help child to talk appropriately only if the situation do recure in her daily routine life. Different situations with a strong potential for communication, presented to the child in the natural home environment through different episodes. The below topics were taken into consideration for a period of twelve months, and all the acts were recorded by a camcorder in a very friendly environment, which came out to be thirty hours data collected in each episode consisting of approximately 15 -20 minutes. l. Play situations involving some kinds of puzzles etc. 2. Reading storybooks. 3. Watching movies related to the same story book. The collected data were carefully analyzed and the unwanted acts were eliminated, so the cream of data was polled out and came to be five hours. The present work will give a longer duration of data collected, tried to be absolutely normal and real environment at home and outside, while the child was playing with her own friends or her parents. Conclusions are drawn from the data collected in a different and real situation of interactive discourse comprising mother-child, father-child, child-child situations with the child at the epicenter of discourse.
