    1. SE is using certain grammar, vocab and spelling
      1. Spoken English is affected by historical, regional and individual variations.
        1. Dialect is the grammar and vocal of language spoken in a particular region
          1. Accent is the way words are pronounced
            1. Language register is how different words/grammatical formations are used defending on the situation
              1. Pedagogical:
                1. Children can recognise and practice SE and other dialects through speaking and listening tasks including drama.
          1. The 3 main theories of language acquisition are: The behaviourist account, the generative/innatist approach and the social interaction approach.
            1. B.F.Skinner = Behaviourist view
              1. Three part sequence = stimulus - response - reward
                1. Main criticism = Children produce utterances they've not heard adults say
              2. Naom Chomsy = Generative/Innatist approach
                1. Supported by LAD (language acquisition device)
                2. Motherese = Non-standard way that adults talk to children
                  1. Children need to experiment with language and be wrong because these are critical elements in learning language in the context of real dialogue.
                  2. Social/Interactive approach = Humans are programmed to communicate and can do so from birth. Language learnt through interaction
                    1. Supported by LASS (Language Acquisition Support System)
                  1. Phonological awareness = Awareness of units of sound and how they work in speech
                    1. Syllable = A group of sounds that act as a unit of rhythm in speech
                      1. Onset = Consonant at the beginning of a syllable
                        1. Homophone = words that sound the same but have a different spelling or meaning
                        2. Rime = The remaining part of a syllable
                          1. Phoneme = Smallest unit of sound in a word
                            1. Morpheme = Smallest unit of meaning in a word
                              1. Phonics = Teaching children sound-symbol correspondences
                              2. 44 phonemes in English - 24 consonant and 20 vowel
                              3. Grapheme = A letter or group of letters representing a sound
                                1. Digraph = Two letter grapheme e.g. CH
                                  1. Trigraph - Three letter grapheme e.g air
                                    1. Split digraph = the 'e' at the end of words works with another letter to make a sound e.g. 'oo' in hope
                                    2. Blending = merging together of separate sounds in a word
                                      1. Segmenting = Breaking words into phonemes to spell
                                        1. Decode = to read words

                                  1. Grammatical knowledge puts children control of their use of language, it helps them in their attempts to communicate and makes them more effective language users.
