Talking 2 year old?

He is very smart and learn's quickly, but he doesnt say much.. everyone says he is more of a "thinker then a talker" he says about 20 to MAYBE 30 words, anyone have any suggestions on what i can do to get him to talk a little more?

When he wants something don't let him just point to things. Tell him to use his words. Also when he is upset or anything, make him talk. If he knows that he can just point or grunt and he gets what he wants then he has no use for words.

I had that problem with my 2nd child, only because his brother could understand his "baby talk" and would do everything for him. When I stopped my older son doing things for his younger brother he started talking non stop.
