  • Child Language Essay

    of the lexemes. Another example of this is ‘it 'll be very lovely’, again similarly to the previous morpheme, the lexeme changes from the noun ‘love’ to the adjective of ‘lovely’ by adding the suffix ‘-y’. The normal language child has also shown how inflections can be successfully added on to a lexeme in order to change the grammatical meaning of it. This has been demonstrated throughout the transcript, he has added the inflection of ‘-s’ to the lexemes ‘train’ and ‘picture’ creating plural forms, and made past tense lexemes such as ‘smacked’ by adding the inflection ‘-ed’. This supports the U-shaped phenomena (Tomasello, 2005) as the child has correctly used the past tense ‘-ed’ form, in some of his speech, but he does not always use the correct past tense form when needed. In the transcript, the child says ‘can I show you how much I do?’ instead of using the past participle form ‘done’, however, the child hasn’t tried to create a past form by adding ‘-ed’ which would have created ‘doed’, suggesting that he knows that the ‘-ed’ inflection is not needed in this case, implying that he is at the end of this U-shaped developmental stage. The SLI child in contrast to the normal language child repeatedly forgets the use of inflections such as saying ‘want’ instead of ‘wanted’ and ‘grab’ instead of ‘grabbed’, these examples show the difficulty that children with SLI can experience when trying to learn the rules which govern word formation in the form of morphemes.
