Dear Students of Psycholinguistics Class,
We have discussed about Mechanisms of Language Acquisition and How Children Construct Grammars, started from our discussion with Stages in Language Acquisition, The Perception and Production of Speech Sounds, First Words, and The Development of Grammar.
Our midterm examination today will get into the following questions:
- What can you describe about how a child adjust his/her language ability into the environment if we view it through the ideas on stages of language acquisition?
- When you have grown up as you are today, can you please briefly inform what can you remember about your first words? You can get the information from your mother, father, or siblings for this question.
Type your answers not less than 20 sentences for each question. Please support your answer with relevant examples and narration. Also, you need to recheck your grammar before posting it.
Please answer the questions above by posting your comments on the available section on this post. The deadline for this examination is on Friday, April 29, 2016, 07.00 am. Late submission of comments will still be allowed, but that will reduce your score. Therefore, please do it ontime. The printed form of this examination should be collected through the Class Coordinator on Monday, May 2, 2016.
For our 10th meeting, please read and give your opinions on “The Development of Grammar for the Acquisition of Phonology” section on the book we used for our class. We will collect it on Saturday, May 7, 2016.
