Authors: Carla Silva1, Fernanda Leopoldina Viana2, Iolanda Ribeiro3, Rosa Lima4, & Irene Cadime1


Studies on the communicative development of Portuguese children under 1:5 are scarce. In this poster a study which main aims were to investigate the development of infants´ gestures and language acquisition in European Portuguese will be presented. Infants´ gestures and language competences were assessed using the European Portuguese MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventory: words and gestures. The parents´ reports of 1314 children, aged between 8 and 15 months, were collected. Results indicate that words comprehension precedes words production and the use of gestures, comprehension and production of words increases with age, as expected. A main effect of gender was found for total gestures, with girls obtaining higher scores than boys. No differences between girls and boys were obtained for words comprehension, words production and phrases understood. All lexical and gesture measures are positively correlated, even after controlling for age and gender effects. These findings are discussed in terms of its consistency with the ones obtained for other languages. Keywords: MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventory: words and gestures; Words comprehension and production; Gestures; Gender differences.
