...language was first used by humans. Some estimates date as far back as two million years ago, during the time of Homo habilis, while others date as recent as forty thousand (40,000) years ago, during the time of Cro-Magnon man. What is unarguably clear, however, is that language development is a continuous process affected by several social factors and that most contemporary human languages are a blend of several primitive ones. One main feature of human language is arbitrariness of symbols and sounds. A symbol or sound only needs to be attached to a particular concept or meaning, or even applied to the rules of grammar and becomes a part...

...LANGUAGE IMPAIRMENT All parents look forward to when their children begin talking. Once the infant’s babble has been replaced by language, the child’s vocabulary and grasp of grammar develop in a clear sequence. Further language skills are gained as the child begins to learn how to read. Problems in any part of this development can have repercussions during school years and into adulthood. Disorders of spoken language can involve a range of problems such as very slow language development and poor understanding of long and complex sentences – these can affect up to 7 per cent of children in early school years (Leonard, 2004). In some cases, they are due to a physical problem such as hearing... SPECIFIC...
