Abstract: 
This paper reports the rmdings of a study aimed. at investigating the relationship between Singaporean preschool children's play and language patterns. Videotaped recordings of 116 children (aged between 4.0 and 6.0 years) at play in a standardised setting in their classrooms, and similar recordings of a random subsample of 56 children in their homes, were analysed using two play measures and five language measures. Analyses of parental data revealed positive attitudes towards child play and high involvement in children's play. High Caldwell HOME scores revealed homogeneity in home environments for stimulating child learning and cognitive development. Few significant differences as a function of sex or SES were found. Correlational data demonstrated the utility of specific play and language measures. Higher levels of play and higher levels of language were correlated.
