    can anyone explain the difference between expansions and recasts , i understand that expansions is when the carer expands the childs utterance into a longer and more meaning full one but I dont get recasts

    As far as I know recasting is a way of an adult letting a child know they're wrong without directly saying it, so instead they recast what the child is trying to say with the standard form. For example, if a child says 'nana' the adult would reply with 'banana', or 'lellow' with 'yellow' if that makes sense?

    I thought a recast is literally just a way of an adult correcting the child without telling them they're wrong, so instead they say the correct version of what the child means to say if that makes sense? Like if a child said 'nana' the mum would say 'yes, a banana' or something?

    hi guys , could really do with some help , im applying for an internship for a small magazine . they've asked me for my previous writing experience , however I obviously haven't gotten my grades yet . my teacher said I have to promote my A/S coursework ( 2 creative writing pieces) and my A2 language investigation piece so far this is what I have come up with
    "During my time at college studying English language I have developed a passion for the subject. In my AS year I was able to develop and learn skills in writing such as what makes a good piece of writing , how writers use specific linguistic features and terminology and the fact you have to take into consideration genre , audience , purpose tone in order to create an excellent engaging , entertaining piece of writing . also learning how writers manipulate language to appeal to a target audience ,at A2 undertook a language investigation where choose a topic to investigate,collected data from a large variety of sources and pieced together the information I had gathered. " i know this crap, but could someone help me expand of what I've written and also suggest what else I could include.
