What, when & how we learn our language: child language acquisition
2002 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to get a greater understanding of language acquisition in general as well as to obtain a more fundamental picture of the language input in bilingual children. Therefore, a study of three bilingual families was conducted accordingly to see if there are any possible differences, and similarities as well, between bilingual and monolingual families, as far as language acquisition is concerned. Other major issues that will be discussed in this paper are for example, when and how we acquire and process the linguistic input we receive. The main results from my interview investigation is that all participants had similar opinions on the subject, to a large extent. The interviews also indicate the great importance education has when it comes to language input. The higher the education level of the parents, the more we tend to influence our children's learning process.
