Abstract: The present study explores the roles of passive joint attention (JA) and maternal behaviours during mother-infant interactions, in explaining individual differences in 18-month vocabulary size. Forty-four healthy 6-month-old infants were filmed during toy play with their mothers. Findings suggest that some types of passive JA episodes are more effective than other types in facilitating subsequent word acquisition, depending on how mothers initiated these episodes. In addition, vocabulary development does not depend as much on how JA episodes are initiated, as it does on whether and how episodes are sustained by mothers? behaviours.
