Question and answer
how do individual acquire and develop language
Language acquisition is the process by which humans acquire the capacity to perceive and comprehend language, as well as to produce and use words and sentences to communicate. [ Language acquisition usually refers to first language acquisition, which studies infants' acquisition of their native language. This is distinguished from second language acquisition, which deals with the acquisition (in
both children and adults) of additional languages. The capacity to successfully use language requires one to acquire a range of tools including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and an extensive vocabulary. Language might be vocalized as speech or manual as in sign. The human language capacity is represented in the brain. Even though the human language capacity is finite, one can say and understand an infinite number of sentences, which is based on a syntactic principle called Recursion. Evidence suggests that every individual has three recursive mechanisms that allow sentences to go indeterminately. These three mechanisms are: relativization, complementation and coordination.[1] ]

Questions asked by the same visitor
how do you communicate your thoughts and how did you learn to do that
Weegy: Keep your sentences short, whether spoken or written, until you can learn to be concise. To be concise you must say what you mean, and mean what you say. To do that, you must pay attention to grammar and syntax. [ Both of those will determine the context your reader or listener gathers from your words. But most of all, do not spout philosophical ideas until you have done some research on the topic to find out whether or not you are advocating what philosophy discarded 1000 years ago; or something that has answers all over the internet, making your words look like idiocy. I once criticized a man in YA! for 'starting from whole cloth' when all he had to do was read up on the subject. I thought he would hate my answer, but he chose mine as 'best' and then asked me for some good references on the topic- because he didn't know other thinkers had already gone where he was going. ] (More)
