All kids start talking on their own time, just like walking or anything else. My first son didn't say more than "mama" "dada" at a year, while his little brother used about 10-12 words consistently at a year. My first son (now a very talkative 3-year-old) really didn't get his language "turned on" until about 2 years. Around 15 months we did teach him some basic sign language, which seemed to ease the communication frustration and didn't interfere with learning speech because we always spoke while we signed with him. Just talk to your daugther non-stop about what you're doing during the day and soon enough you won't be able to get her to stop talking! Good luck.
