(fluid filled) - semicircular canals (controls balance and equilibrium) - Cochlea (hearing . cilia
Functions of the 4 brain lobes

Important Areas for Speech and Language
- Wernicke's Area: Located in the Temporal lobe, comprehension - Broca's Area: Located in the Frontal lobe, expressive Language - Primary Motor Cortex - Primary Auditory...
- Diaphram flattens -Ribs move outwards -Sternum moves up and outward -lungs expand with air
- Muscles relax in passive breathing - every 12-15 times a minute you take a breath -increased power needed for speech - little inhilation followed by long exhalation during speech -...
ABduction and ADDuction of Vocal Folds
Abduction: open Adduction: Closed
Cycle of Vocal Fold Vibration
- Vocal folds adduct to restrict airflow from lungs -Air pressure builds up beneath vocal folds - Vocal folds are blown apart with air moving up into the pharynx -decreased pressure...
Function of the Velum
Closes when swallowing so food doesnt go out your noise. When velum raises is closes of velar sounds
Places of articulation
- alveolar ridge - teeth - hard palate -soft palate (tongue,lips,jaw)
Concept of nature vs nurture in Language acquisition

Brain is Like a computer. You take in, convert into symbolic code, store in memory and retrieve when needed.
language use is the vehicle in which we learn it. We use language for a purpose. There are 3 speech acts; -locutionary acts: what you say -illoctionary act: your meaning -perloctionary...

-0-1 month -relexive actions (crying,sucking) -no differentiation between self and objects reflexes: moro sucking rooting grasp
sub stage 2
1-4 months -look at objects -turn eyes toward sounds -imitation:will copy vocalization (cooing) communication: cries are more differentiated
sub stage 3
4-8 months -Object permanance begins to develp, they reach for objects if it falls away(not if out of sight) -casuality- baby thinks there in control of all things -Means-end- does...
-8-12 months object permanence- look for hidden objects and understand spatial dimensions (upside down cup) Casuality- less ego centric and understands that other people cause actions Means...
12-18 months Object permanence is almost complete, sequential displacement (looks for thingds in places theyve looked for before) Casuality- sees other people as agents Means-end:...
