Seminar paper from the yr 2006 within the topic American experiences - Linguistics, grade: 2,3, collage of Cologne, 14 Literaturquellen entries within the bibliography, language: English, summary: the power to profit and bring usual language and stream past the communique of signal and physique language is exclusive to humans. the purchase of language is feasible due to the fact that grammar is believed to be common. common Grammar (UG) defines houses of language itself. CHOMSKY’S conception of grammar is restricted, first, through common grammatical rules which make certain the wide define of grammar and are normally actual and, moment, by way of grammatical parameters that are language-specific dimensions of a specific language and make allowance crosslinguistic version. the 1st doesn’t need to be realized because it is a part of the innate language school; the latter should be received and is thought to be associated with person goods within the lexicon (CAPDEVILA I BATET ET AL. 1995, 31). The imperative activity of acquisition is hence the development of the grammar of the objective language, in different phrases, the surroundings of parameters, that is often known as grammatical studying (versus lexical learning).
One of the parameters that should be set is the development of negation. during this paper, i glance on the nature and operation of negation (part I) and the way little ones and adults collect it in the course of their first and moment language acquisition technique of varied languages (parts II and III). in addition, underlying rules and mechanisms of L1 and L2 acquisition should be mentioned and in comparison. i would like to enquire the way the rules and parameters of UG (do now not) function through the years because the individual’s grammar steadily develops and discover if the children’s and adults’ grammars comply with those.
An person buying L1 has to entry the innate grammatical principals of UG within the preliminary kingdom and study the language-specific grammatical parameters. L1 acquisition is fast, uniform and virtually error-free. How the purchase of negation for an L1-learner develops should be provided within the moment half.
L2-learners have already realized an L1 and are anticipated to be useful clients of the explicit grammar in their first language. They study a moment language, i.e. be certain a brand new environment for correct grammatical parameters so as to arrive at a linguistic procedure of the objective L2. Their acquisition is characterised by means of nice variability crosslinguistically and throughout person inexperienced persons (MEISEL 1997, 227). half three appears at 2LA of negation and desires to explain even if 1LA and 2LA percentage similarities and if UG performs a task in 2LA.
