Phrases and Sentences

  • S. H. Burton
Part of the Macmillan Master Series book series (PAMAS)


Very young children use single words when they speak, but they soon outgrow that inefficient way of communicating. They learn how to make themselves understood by using words in groups. The response that they get from other people teaches them which of the word groups they are using make sense and which do not. In this way they progress, learning language skills by trial and error until they can frame word groups that make complete sense.
