Language acquisition terminology bingo

A revision activity for students to recap some of the key terminology used in studying child language acquisition. Students select some of the key terms for their own grid, and cross these off as the teacher reads out the definitions provided.

Sample content

Overextension: where a word used to label something is ‘stretched’ to include things that aren’t usually part of that word’s meaning, e.g. labelling a ‘cat’ or a ‘horse’ as a ‘dog’.   

Free morpheme: a unit of meaningful language that can stand alone as an independent word e.g. ‘table’.
