Him saying 'I am a beelbarrow' was an analysis point. He simplified the 'w' sound br substituting it for a 'b' sound. This is common amongst children when they cannot correctly pronounce a phoneme, more common is the substitution of 'w' for 'r' blah blah blah

You could also talk about care-giver speech there by saying about how the mum positively reinforces James by not disagreeing but rather just saying the correct pronounciation

Yay! I included that about the phoneme and substitution (simplification). At least I used some terminology for once.


Did anyone notice any of Halliday's functions? I noticed two I think.

I completely ignored the context of Molly watching the TV. In fact I only just found out now that she was watching TV :| Will I lose lots of marks for that? I wrote about other contextual situations such as playing in a playhouse would distract the children...

Also I said the first utterances went against Skinner as Skinner demonstrated imitation and the child was unable to imitate the exact sounds of the mother but it demonstrated substitution as the child could pronounce plosive sounds such as "b"...

I seem to have written different things to others which can't be a good sign! Although I did do question one and four which appears to be the most popular questions. I think I did better on child language than language change... x
Yes I believe it did go against Skinner's Behaviourist idea. I hope so anyway.

Phewww I'm glad I got the Skinner right then!! I used the Regulatory Funtion (Halliday) but wasn't sure whether it was the right one. :| I mentioned heuristic in general but not specific to anything sooo that was irrelevant in my essay I think. Which ones did you use? x

I think I mentioned the heuristic function very briefly, I barely got any theorists in there at all! Didn't mention Skinner at all lol, ah well its only a portion of the marks, hopefully my analysis will be sound

Yeah. I mentioned Skinner because James repeated exactly what his mother had said in text B, something like 'it got wet'. And Piaget, I said something about how James learnt to speak properly through trial and error with the assistance of caretaker speech; where at first he said 'dower' but after his father and molly said it properly, he was then able to say it correctly.

I think you had to mention the fact that in text A, the children were watching the TV. The fact they were in the playhouse means very little, because in text B they were in the playhouse, but the TV was turned off, which resulted in a more active role being played by Molly and Charlotte.

I think I mentioned something about heuristics somewhere in one of the transcripts. I used John Dore's theory too!

Hi, Hope everyone did good in their exam!!!

I did question 1 and 4 like a lot of people did. I thought that question 1 was a good text cos lots to write about James' language and also about CDS.

I thought that beelbarrow was either James being unable to articulate the 'Wh' sound or that it was the fis phenomenon, where the child thinks they are saying it the same as their parent. Did anyone else think that?????????????

Oh I also put that when his mum corrected him but didn't actually say he was wrong, that she was recasting it.

I normally forgot about theory in mocks but I actually used Skinner, Bruner, Chomsky and someone else... :O shocker for me!

It's the fis phenomenon, or at least I'm pretty sure it is. When his mother corrected him, he said 'Yes, a beelbarrow'.

I'm reading through this thread and thinking I've mentioned all that's been said, so hopefully I've done well.

I did 1 and 4

At first, with the transcript, I started feature spotting James' speech, and looking at all the things he was doing, but then I reread the question after a couple of minutes and realised I needed to do the assertion thing!

I mentioned Halliday's imaginative function, in relation to that 'I'm a beelbarrow' thing. That's the only function I could remember though :p:


I wasn't too keen on either of the language change ones, but I prefer having older texts. I got really confused by "impraticable" - I was trying to explain that it had been shortened slightly, and so replaced by "impractical", but I couldn't for the life of me remember how to spell impractical. So on the back page of my answer booklet it says "impracticle impractical impracticel inpractical inpractible..." I got there in the end though :p:

Hiya,

Does anyone know how you work out the UMS mark to the raw mark.

If I need 93 UMS marks out of 120 (a high B) for an A overall, how many marks do I need to get out of 70????

Thanks

It's difficult to say. The exam board will change the grade boundaries every year, depending on how difficult the paper was. Roughly, I'd say you need around 46 marks altogether though

As in grade wise?

I think I probably got a C. I only needed a D or E in that paper to get an A though, so hopefully I'm still on track.

Nowhere near as well as I have done on practice papers. But I only needed 60 UMS which is around a D I think. So I'm really hoping I got that! (balance out my appalling performance in my other exams anyway...)
