As projected by psychologists oral language development effectively takes place from the child’s early years, where in a child is capable of learning two or more languages easily as compared with adult learners. It is vital for a child to learn to communicate from a very early age, in order to become a fully literate and educated person. Since so much is developed and learned by a child early on, the education and proper training should be the most important component of the child’s life and into adolescent’s. Early literacy is defined as the stages undergone by a child in developing their language skills which includes reading and writing. Oral language performs essential functions in the development and enhancement of the child’s thinking skills. Through the development of oral language the critical thinking ability of a child undergoes the same pace. Familiarizing themselves with the vocabulary and the language basically makes them think of the proper and appropriate words on how to present and express their thoughts with other people. The aforementioned things provide a strong link between the child’s oral language development and early literacy. The more a child can interpret and deeply understand oral language, the greater the possibility that a child has the capacity to interpret, analyze, and understand written texts. Research findings have revealed that a child at his/her young age possessing an exemplary oral language development is more likely to reach a commendable literacy level; while in the reverse, a child with poor oral language development has a greater probability of having low level of literacy skills. Oral language, despite of its being one of the foundations of literacy, is often neglected or given lesser importance in emphasizing the enhancement of literacy skills. Oral language performs various essential roles in academic success as studies with monolingual English speakers illustrated. The skills used in deciphering knowledge and information cultivated by having oral language proficiency is the threshold toward the development of reading comprehension among these young learners. This shows the interrelationships among the four macro skills in language learning such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The vocabulary words that a child learned from his or her environment through listening and used in speaking are essential in developing his or her reading comprehension. IMPORTANCE OF READING SKILLS According to the article entitled “Reading, Literacy, and Your Child”, research has distinguished five basic reading skills which are all important in improving the literacy level of every child such as phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and fluency. Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear, distinguish, and play with isolated sounds known as “phonemes” in oral language; Phonics is the capability of connecting with the letters of the written language with the inclusion of the phonemes of the spoken language; Vocabulary which is considered as the words that a child needs to recognize in order to communicate proficiently; reading comprehension is the ability to deeply understand and derive meaning from

Pharmaceutical industry is under a state of constant revolution ever since its official origin in the nineteenth century. This is due to the reason that it is an industry that is characterized by research and development processes that are highly risky, costly and time consuming; along with purchaser pressures, increasing government regulations and intense competition.
How a child is moulded paves the way for its temperament and predisposition. The ability to express oneself by means of speech and ability to hear is vital for understanding, both these processes are connected with the oral language. Developing speaking skills overlay the foundation for enriching knowledge.
The best application of such principles ensures that teachers understand how their learners study; they also create a community of learners, and adopt a balanced approach to literacy instruction. This would only yield positive results in teaching and reading if the core principles of Syntactic and Semantic come in place.
It is a communication disorder consisting of inappropriate use in any of the structures of language (e.g., morphology refer as the structure of a word includes the patterns of inflections and derivation), syntax (organization of words in sentences defines the ordering of and relationship between the words and other structural elements in phrases and sentences The syntax may be of a whole language, a single phrase or sentence, or of an individual speaker), semantics (the study of how meaning in language is created by the use and interrelationships of words, phrases, and sentences), and pragmatics (the branch of linguistics that studies language use rather than language structure) which advers
By 15 months, the majority (about 75 percent) of children have a vocabulary that consists of "Mama" and "Dada" plus at least three other words, usually nouns, such as "cookie," "ball," and "dog." "More," and of course the all-time toddler favorite, "No!" are also common early words.
The human languages are known as natural language, artificial languages , constructed languages (individual groups have constructed for practical, experimental, personal or ideological reasons), formal languages, and the programming languages.
The author of the paper states that the use of language refers to the reasons why individuals speak and the ways they construct conversations depending upon what they know about the listener and the context. Language impairment can be further broken down into receptive and expressive language impairments.
These are the basic questions sought to be investigated in this research. This paper attempts to explore the fundamental elements concerned with language development such as the Critical Period Hypothesis, brain anatomy
