Abstract [en]

The MacArthur Communicative Development Inventory CDI (Fenson et al., 1993) is widely used to assess early expressive vocabulary development. Its toddler form, Words and Sentences, is validated as a parental vocabulary checklist for 16- to 30-month-old children. The CDI was developed for American English, but has been adapted to assess British (Hamilton, Plunkett, & Schafer, 2000) and New Zealand English vocabularies (Reese & Read, 2000). In this study, the CDI is adapted to Australian English, and various limitations, such as length and imbalance of gender-based items are overcome. This inventory omits grammatical aspects of the original CDI in order to shorten the checklist (see WORDS short form), Corkum & Dunham, 1996) and replaces inappropriate words with Australian English equivalents. This Australian adaptation of the CDI, and its correlations with the original CDI based on approximately 100 children (24 and 30 months) will be presented.
