Chapter 7: First combinations, first constructions

Book Name: First Language Acquisition

Saeed Mojarradi Ph.D. Candidate T.2              13-May-18

As children add to their first words, they add specificity and detail to how they express what they want and what they are interested in.

Structure in the form of contrasting inflections added to words and in the form of constructions reflected in the combinations of words.

To do all this, children have to start learning to think for speaking in their first language (Slobin 19%). That is, they must start to use the conventional constructions for expressing particular meanings.
