    Eg. what do you talk about each paragraph?

    For example in Language Change we've been taught to write an intro paragraph with GAPS (genre, audience, purpose, structure), then subsequent paragraphs for each letter of GLOSS (grammar, lexis, orthography, syntax, semantics). Is there a structure at all for Child Language Acquisition?

    Which section are you on about?

    Are you referring to the extract base one or the theory question?

    The way I do CLA is to not limit myself to a specific structure - I annotate the text(s) and create categories that I can add my best points into. These can be anything from 'capitalisation' to 'gender issues' so don't have to cohere to a particular AO as the heading. I pick 3 or 4 of these as my paragraphs.

    In my introduction, I talk about the context and age of the child, as well as what stage they would expected to be in, and why they are/aren't.

    I try to link each of the 3 or 4 key paragraphs at the start of each one to have a more coherent essay, so make sure you take that into account with your planning.

    I don't generally have a conclusion
