What is the normal development of a 14 months old speech?

I am not sure if my 14 month old has a speech delay or not.

The 14-month old child should produce strings of different syllables such as "ba-da-na," should be using some real words, and should understand simple commands.

A fourteen month old child should be able to say between ten and five-teen words. He or she may not say the words clearly, just so you can understand what they are saying.

At 14 months a baby should be babbling a lot (nonsense vowels and consonants) and may have uttered the all important first word. Some children have several words at this point, but some do not have anything identifiable.

You have 50 words left!
