Course Content (Syllabus)
The course belongs to the field of Psycholinguistics and specializes in the ‘Acquisition of Mother Tongue’ by children with normal development but also by children with Specific Language Impairment. It begins with the presentation of some theories of language development which disagree with regard to the basic principles of perception of language as a cognitive system and then focuses on the development of language behavior from birth till about the age of 4 years. It then compares typical language development with cases of disorders to identify the facets of language that are more severely affected.
