Language Acquisition SLP329

School-age accomplishments Literate language structures. Expanded lexicon (30-60k). Linguistic flexibility. Figurative language.
Literate language structures (school-age) (5) Written and spoken: adjectives, adverbs, advanced conjunctions, mental state verbs, derivational morphology.
Linguistic flexibility Multiple meanings, lexical ambiguity (humor)
Humor Age 4 - early joke-telling. Age 5-7: knock, knock jokes, riddles. Age 8-12: jokes/puns based on lexical ambiguity. Age 9-10: sarcasm.
Figurative language Poetry, metaphors, proverbs, slang, idioms.
Personal experiences with figurative language Poetry goes over my head. Middles school grammar jock drilled similes/metaphors. Childhood immersed in religious imagery & Biblical language. Memorized poetic Psalms/Proverbs. Exposition of idioms for mom's sake.
Your current level of comfort with figurative language forms. Disadvantaged? "Variety is the spice of life." FL is culturally bound. Acculturation gauge. Experience in Spain. Part of identity. Left "in the dark" by unfamiliar references/slang. Inspires curiosity.
Are these important forms of language for all children? "A picture is worth a thousand words." It is descriptive language, imagery. Helps to communicate ideas. Insight into speaker's thinking. Options for alternative efforts.
