get? fast. Talking to two year old: still talking really fast. So we don’t talk slower over all, even though we think we do.  We just lead up to the big words.    What do we talk about? We talk about the present, things that are here Visible things Sounds of  language 0-6 months : can differentiate any sounds that’s used to differentiate  any words in any language Later on:  we loose that ability! 8 month olds don’t recognize the  difference in sounds that their language doesn’t use, but if their language does  use it then they pay attention.  Happens within the first year.  Babies  understand what we say Experiment: when a mom says “wheres the apple”, kids look more at  the apple than at the other object.  They understand us by 6 months! So its  actually good to TALK to your child. Learning to talk: 6-8 weeks: cooing 2-6 months: gradual intro of consonants 6-8 months: canonical babbling (dadada or nanana) 11 months: variegated babbling (dababi with prosody) By 24 months, if less than 50 words and no word combination, call  audiologist.   How children  learn words We think that for the most part we learn words based on aligning them  with the objects they are with.  It’s a good way to teach vocabulary, but not the  MEANINGS of things. So two more hypothesis: 1.  Over many instances, kids work out what was and wasn’t relevant  over their memories. 2.  Kids start out with a guess, and keep that hypothesis as long as it  lasts.  If it fails they start over.   Stages of learning  words: Stage one:  One word phase: they start with a one word and literally that’s all  they say. Stage two:  Two word phase: more complicated Stage three:  Morphology: suddenly they add word endings, prefixes.  Lots of  words! Stage four:  age of five: only a few more details to go! Bilingualism Kids are extremely good at learning languages.  No limit on the  number that they learn! But they have to be exposed to a A LOT of language in  order to learn it.  They need to be seriously engaged socially.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
