Sample text

It is the act of the adult verbalizing—within the hearing of the child—but without the expectation (or linguistic construction requiring) that the child will or should respond—thus being a soliloquy. When the child engages in self-talk this can also be characterized as soliloquy, with many of the same qualities, functional objectives, and response/interaction potentials. The verbalization is designed to be overheard but not responded to. This is the sine qua non of MST. If the soliloquy is dependent on the “listener” responding, there will be the risk that the producer will limit or stop producing the rich linguistic environment—that he or she will stop talking to the child.

There is further research signifying that early linguistic experience stimulates the development of cognitive processes. And by early we mean in infancy, within the first weeks of life, even before there are any overt indications of focusing, awareness, or articulatory responsiveness. There is general agreement in the field of language development that imitation is a central aspect of acquisition, and that the processes of imitation continue throughout the life of the learner. The young child acquires speech in large part through mimicry of the spoken word.
