21 month old not talking

I have a beautiful 21 month old granddaughter, and she is not really talking as of yet.  She has very good communication skills, ie..sign language, pointing to things she wants etc, but does not really say many words.  She will say the odd word once in a while like, "papa, mama, dada, yes, nope, hello", but nothing too much more, except baby talk.  She understands I think very well for her age, and will actually reply to a no or yes comment, if a question is raised on the tv, and she is busy doing something else.   Her parents have tried making her say words by not giving her things that she wants, even if they know what she is referring to, but so far this has not helped.  Her hearing seems to be ok, as she will come running from her bedroom, if you should call her from another room.  She is  very clever little girl, as she is actually potty training herself.  She will just motion that she needs to go, and away she goes, or if you ask her she will respond by shaking her head yes or no.  Is there any reason for concern with her not talking yet?
