Individual and group studies of the language development of children have largely centered about the meaningful content including vocabulary, the production of speech sounds, and growth in the use of the sentence. Practically no studies have been made of the expressive side of language development including pitch variation, vocal quality, accent and emphasis, and the temporal organization of the language units.
