I'm taking the exam but have completely ignored writing and reading. Spoken development is always guaranteed to come up so it may be worth focussing on that!

Yep I was just going to focus on that but the spoken section may include aspects of reading or writing too so that's what I'm worried about

Ahhh I see what you mean. Tbh I think it would be really weird if they did something like that as the whole context is the kid's spoken ability, so anything you'd say would be in reference to that. If it does though, I'd link it to Vygotsky in that a book for example is a prop which gives the kid's speech meaning. If it does speak about what the book is saying then maybe talk about how the book is directed at developing the speech acquisition of the child.

So for example

We can see Sam use a high frequency of proper nouns, e.g. "Mum" (which acts contextually as a proper noun due to the mother's role in Sam's life), and "John". Chiefly this can be seen to demonstrate good pragmatic development in Sam's language, as the use of proper nouns are typically conventional of the conversational discourse. Furthering this concept, Sam's understanding of this format of the spoken mode amplifies what Halliday described as the imaginative function (these emphasising one's need for purpose in language). To explain, we can see a semantic field of fictional characters "random fairytale crap". Primarily this is expected due to the early exposure of such stories to children from an early age. When we consider this along-side Hallidays point on imaginative language, we can see how the story acts as what Vygotsky described as a 'pivot', with the imaginative nature of the fairytale making the conversation entertaining, subsequently giving language purpose. In this sense, Sam is making decent pragmatic development via his lexical ability, emphasising how language is best developed during early life; this being what Lennenberg described as the 'critical period' which inadvertently supports Chomsky's theory of innateness.

Ya see how you talk about the format of the text, not the ability to read it. I'm not sure if that's 100% along the lines of what you meant so if not sorry for rambling on XD

How is everyone approaching the question? How are you managing your time also? I have no idea how to answer the question, like how you pick things out and talk about them in an orderly way. Please help
