I need some input on these questions.
If you feel I'm wrong-please let me know. Thanx for helping!
1.Which one of the following would NOT
be typical communication for a three- year-old?
A. "That's scary!"
B. "I'm hungry."
C. "Nobody likes carrots!"
D. "I want cookies."
2. Which one of the following sentences
would not be typical of a two-year
A. "Mommy buyeded a book."
B. "Me want juice."
C. "Why rain?"
D. "Let's go to Grandma's."
Would the correct answer for the first question be:
(C)"Nobody likes carrots!"
Would the correct answer for the second question be:
(D)"Let's go to Grandma's."
I think 1st one is right.
But i think the 2nd one should be (A). Because when have you ever heard a two year say mommy buyeded a book. Unless it was born genusis LOL :).
Anyone else have an opinion on this?
1 = C (for sure
2 = A or D
I've been listening carefully to my (now) 7 year old granddaughter, and when she was 2, she didn't speak in either of those ways. Plus she had just turned 6 when she started putting the -ed's on all past tense verbs.
I have observed and listened to four grandchildren, and I've heard many other children (including my own) go through the language learning process. Very few 2 year olds would put extra -ed's on verbs because they have not picked up on the difference between present and past tenses. Also, most 2 year olds do not speak in full sentences, so I think both A and D are NOT what a 2 year old would say.
In the second question: Wouldn't the
answer (A)"Mommy buyeded a book." an
example of a 2 year old chid using overregularization?
Yes, it is an example of overrequlation.
I would go with D, but I don't like it. I have a two year old grandchild that does not speak in sentences, in fact, she does not speak at all.
