What is an example of a syntax (middle childhood related)? What is an example of a progmatic(middle childhood related) I tryed searching but didn't find anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You~~~
Syntax mainly means grammatical structures -- grammar and usage.
In middle childhood, just about all children who learned English from babyhood have learned most correct irregular verb forms, for one example. They stop saying "bringed" and learn that it is "taught." (etc.)
In here, for instance -- http://members.cox.net/lenco1/grammarpractice/verbnav.htm -- you can click on Irregular Verbs #1 and Irregular Verbs #2 to get an idea about this particular issue.
The quizzes in here -- http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/verbs.htm#irregular -- can help you add to the list of irregular verbs if you need to.
I have no idea what "progmatic" is, other than the name of a rather strange band! Please check the spelling.
Sorry it's suppose to be pragmatic
"Pragmatic" is an adjective, not a noun. What is the entire context of the use of this word?
