Kentuckians in Ohio and Indiana

Kentuckians in Ohio and Indiana is designed specifically to assist genealogists seeking ancestors from Ohio or Indiana who were originally from Kentucky. Deliberately passing over the conventional record sources, it draws its information from published county histories and county atlases, works containing the type of information likely to be of use to the genealogist. Arranged in tabular format under county of origin, entries include some or all of the following information: the name of the Kentucky migrant, his birth date, the names of his parents and their dates and places of birth (if known), and the date of migration. The name index at the back of the book contains references to more than 10,000 persons.


Language and Learning

Once again, this comprehensive, easy-to-read book explores the way in which children learn language, the way language is taught to children, and how these two roads to language sometimes diverge–always giving equal treatment to first and second language learning. Piper tracks language acquisition, from birth through the school years, presenting numerous cases studies of children’s experiences as a means of illustrating stages of language development and the sequence of skills attainment. In addition, she thoroughly covers bilingualism, paying particular attention to the differences between second language learning at home and in a school setting. For ESL and elementary school speech teachers.


Learning Through Language in Early Childhood

Through everyday conversations and interactions, children utilize language to learn about the world and how to reason within it. In this book, Clare Painter presents a case study of one child’s use of language from ages two and a half to five. She examines the role of language development in interpreting the key domains of experience: the world of things, the world of events, the world of semiosis, and the construal of cause and effect. By tapping into systemic functional theories, Painter constructs a convincing argument that cognitive development is a linguistic process and that new linguistic possibilities can prepare a child for later learning in school.
