A. Discussion Question (Chapter 9) 150 word + reference)

Hi Everyone:

I was intrigued to read that "A natural language has two necessary characteristics: It is regular(governed by a system of rules, called a grammar), and it is productive, meaning that infinite combinations of things can be expressed in it" (Galotti, p. 215, 2014). A natural language definition is not provided to us by our course main text (Galotti).  The text does go on to state "All human languages are communication systems, but not all communication systems have the prerequisites to be classified as natural languages" (Galotti, p. 215, 2014).

This has particular importance to us as we delve into this week's learning objectives -

4.1 Define language and lexicon.

4.2 Evaluate key features of language.

4.3 Describe the four levels of language structure and processing.

4.4 Analyze the role of language processing in cognitive psychology.

Who can share with the rest of us what some of these feature above are?

One of the concepts discussed during Week 4 is the critical periods of language acquisition. Is there a critical period for language? If so, what might this imply about learning multiple languages in school?

D. Discussion Question (Language Structure) 150 words and reference

 

Language Structure

Reflect on the structure of language and discuss the following:

As discussed in this week’s reading assignment, language structure is important in cognition, but is it really? For example, if a child said to you, “You, me, cookie, go now, hurry,” you would know what the child meant, even though what is said is not grammatically correct. How is that possible?
