I have always been fascinated by language acquisition because I believe that if we can understand how children learn language, we will gain a deeper understand of language itself. Consistent with the discourse-based approach to linguistics in this department, I view grammar as fundamentally and profoundly shaped by the everyday talk discourse in which it is used. As children and adults, we experience grammar in and through this talk; as a result, our knowledge of grammar arising from this experience is permeated with discourse information.
Communication strategies[ edit ] No comprehensive list of strategies has been agreed on by researchers in second-language acquisition but some commonly used strategies have been observed: Circumlocution This refers to learners using different words or phrases to express their intended meaning.
Semantic avoidance Learners may avoid a problematic word by using a different one, for example substituting the irregular verb make with the regular verb ask. The regularity of "ask" makes it easier to use correctly. For example, a learner might refer to an art gallery as a "picture place".
Learners of a second language may learn to avoid talking about topics for which they lack the necessary vocabulary or other language skills in the second language. Also, language learners sometimes start to try to talk about a topic, but abandon the effort in mid-utterance after discovering that they lack the language resources needed to complete their message.
Some researchers who have studied communication strategies and their effect on language acquisition include Elaine TaroneClaus Faerch, Gabriele Kasper, and Ellen Bialystok. Communication strategies were seen as belonging to the planning phase; their use became necessary if the learner experienced a problem with the initial plan that they made.
In addition to the strategies outlined above Kasper and Faerch also pointed to the possibility of using a reductive strategy such as switching to a completely different topic. However, Bialystok and other researchers have pointed out that communication strategies may be employed by language learners when there has been no breakdown in communications no problematicity and that language learners typically use the same small set of strategies routinely, rather than intentionally and consciously choosing to employ a communications strategy.The acquisition of Japanese Communicative Style-the yarimorai verbs.
