Abstract [en]

The MacArthur Communicative Development Inventory CDI (Fenson et al, 1993), an American English parental vocabulary checklist, was adapted to Australian English, resulting in the Australian English vocabulary inventory OZI, validated for 16- to 30-month-old children. High correlations between OZI and CDI were observed in a first study (r=.99 for 24-month-olds, r=.97 for 30-month-olds), however the OZI assessed the vocabulary of Australian toddlers more appropriately, as the scores were significantly higher than on the CDI. A frequency count for the first 500 words as well as preliminary vocabulary norms for age groups from several hundred children are presented from the ongoing second study.
