  • Skill Apquisition Theory: The Three Stages Of Second Language Acquisition

    a new item has to be integrated into an interlanguage and it involves changing the acquisition as a whole. When we learn something it effects the knowledge and shrinks our understanding about something else. As we learn we will continuously shrink the knowledge we already have. To illustrate the idea of restructuring, during my experience learning Arabic I over-generlized a rule which still is problematic for me. In arabic there are feminine and male pronouns that are added to objects although abstract object, all objects need a pronouns to identify them which sometimes happened randomly. The eye took a feminine pronoun whereas the head took a masculine pronoun. To my over-generlization of this, I used the feminine pronoun for all eyes, mouth, stomach and head but what happened is that I fossilised this idea. Although I know the rule due to memorisation, I still find myself making mistakes and need time to think about which objects are feminine and which are masculine. Thus, my knowledge of Arabic feminine and masculine pronouns are still considered declarative knowledge. According to DeKeyser (2007) during procedurlization stage, the procedural knowledge obtained will need repetitive practice before it becomes automatic. Frequent practice will minimise error rate and reaction time and that the movement from proceduralized knowledge to automatisation we must follow this equation. Procedural knowledge + frequent practice = lower error rate and lower reaction time…

In English, certain syntactic rules function to ease our understanding of sentences with complex constituents by moving them to the end of the sentence. In this paper, I will investigate the…

  • Child Language Essay

    They are both allomorphs of the morpheme ‘a’. The SLI child repeatedly says ‘a elephant’ and ‘a egg’, using the incorrect form. The reason I believe this is an effect of SLI is because the child with normal language is able to use the correct allomorph when needed, for example he says ‘an easy one to make’. With the examples provided it clearly shows that there is a significant developmental difference between children with and without SLI. According to Brown (1973) children go through five…
