Name 4 remarkable features of language universality (all cultures have it), species specificity (it's human), Semanticity (represent things that are intangible, abstract, removed from the present), and Productivity (small number of units combine to produce a large number of utterances)
Semantics Meanings of words and word combinations
Morphology Smallest meaningful unit of language; governs word formation; free vs bound
Phonology Governs sounds we use to make syllables and words; how sounds are organized in words
Syntax Governs sentence structure; helps reveal speaker intent
Pragmatics Governs social use of language; code switching; use of extra-linguistic and paralinguistic aspects of communication
The Domains of Language Bloom's Model: Form (organization of sounds, words and sentences to convey content), Content (semantics, vocabulary), Use (Functional use to meet personal and social needs, topic maintenance, turn-taking, social conventions, nonlinguistic communication)
Development: at about 1 year First word (Clear intention and purpose, recognizable pronunciation, consistent use)
Development: 1 year to 18 months Build lexicon

Preschool: achievements in content Lexical development, shift to de-contextualized language
Preschool: achievements in form Acquisition of & refinement of grammatical and derivational morphemes (especially verbs)
Preschool: achievements in use Expansion of language functions, development of turn taking skills, improved narrative skills
