Yup, Katie's right. Most kids that age have developed some form of communication, but not necessarily "words". As long as she's alert and doing other things like giggling, looking at peoples faces, making little faces and gestures of her own, then I'm sure she's just fine. Often times with girls, they will just listen and not talk for a long time....then one day she'll say a word and the next day two more words, and the day after that a few new words...........and then she will never stop talking. Definetely too early to worry but of course, if your family fears that there is something strange going on, definetely seek medial advice. Good luck.
