Module D activity 1




-Has 2 different views:-Information-processing Theory: Language is made up of artificial nueral networks. Language is not learned only made sense of.-Social Interactionist Theories:Children have a need to be understood and to understand others. They send social cues to care givers to provide the needed language experiences. Language grows from social interactions. They understand language development but not how it takes place.

-Children are responsible for their own language.-LAD: a device in the brain that allows the child to make sense of vocabulary and to combine words grammatically to understand the meaning of sentences. -Universal grammar: a part of the brain children store language rules within the LAD. It helps them understand grammatical categories and relationships.-language is learned early and swiftly.-The mastery of language is spontaneous with limited exposure to the language.

-Language is learned through operant conditioning, Skinner.-Immitation, is to rapidly learn whole phrases and sentences. Can be combined with reinforcement. say, "Say I want a cookie" and reward the child with a cookie if the say "wanna cookie!"-Takes intensive language tutoring, that seems too exstensive and impossible. -Can help children develop a working knowledge of language rules. But adult interactions do influence children's language.

-Both involve social interactions in order to learn language skills.

- Language is learned better while a child is young.- Language can be learned quickly.

-Both believe in a biological belief about how language is stored and processed and learned.

There are flaws and pieces missing in each belief on the little pieces of langauge and how it is formed.
