The oral language is a ruled and complex system. It allows an exchange of information through
a determined system of codification. It is not the only system, but with it, the thinking is
constructed, invented and recreated, it regulates the interpersonal relationships, the behaviour
of the individual itself and promotes the relationship between the child and his/her sociocultural
The development of the oral language is the result of the interaction between the biological
basis and the physical and social environment that surrounds the child.
Our aim at writing this article is to approach the oral language from birth up to the age of 6
years, attending to the normalized evolution from its different dimensions (form, content and
use) in order to detect as soon as possible the hypothetic problems and to put a stop to them
with the educational and therapeutic suitable measures.
