RENATA ROSEMBERG, Celia et al. Vocabulary, narration and argumentation during the first years o infancy and childhood. A research review. Rev. Costarric. Psic [online]. 2016, vol.35, n.2, pp.74-93. ISSN 1659-2913.

We present a research review of studies about children’s psycholinguistic performance regarding vocabulary as well as narrative and argumentative discourse. Within the framework of a wide array of research studies on the subject, this revision focuses on the line of research that we have been carrying out with children from diverse sociocultural groups in Argentina. In order to illustrate the concepts, we have included audio or video conversational exchanges among children between two and half years and five years old. The exchanges were recorded in different contexts of interaction at school and at home. In the theoretical presentation, as well as in the analysis of exchanges we point out the relationships between vocabulary and narrative and argumentative discourse, that took place within the social interactions in the daily activities at home, in the community, and school environments. Likewise, we highlight the need to attend to the context of social interaction in which a child’s vocabulary

is inserted early on, when children begin to produce discourse in order to carry out their communicational goals.
