The article is about the phenomenon of infantile egocentric speech, as a natural stage of a "speech personality" formation. On the basis of a large amount of examples the author drew conclusions on the psycholinguistic regularities of infantile egocentric speech and the specific character of a child's world perception and verbal reflection of impressions of the surrounding world. The phenomenon of infantile egocentric speech is considered as a tool to understand the inner world of a child and at the same time as the evidence of the early period of the language development, where a word and a thing, denoted by the word, are inseparable. The author concludes that the infantile egocentric speech research is significant both for teachers, psychologists and linguists, language historians, mythologists.

Key words
