2 How psychological variables explain order of learning of morphemes Low Low High High Low Low High High Low High Low High High Sound signal for referent L L L L L L/M L L H L/M H H H L L L L L M M L H H H H H Summary H L L H H L L H H L H L H First-language learning 1 • How children learn language the sound signal that indicates the referent. The three variables are further based on the principle that generally what the child first understands will be that which the child first produces. These variables affect secondlanguage learning as well.

Period 2 ‘I don’t want it’; ‘I don’t know his name’; ‘We can’t talk’; ‘You can’t dance’; ‘Book say no’; ‘Touch the snow no’; ‘That no Mommy’; ‘There no squirrels’; ‘He no bite you’; ‘I no want envelope’ In this second period, the negative marker tends to appear internally within the utterance rather than outside it as in the previous period, and the auxiliaries ‘do’ and ‘can’ appear with the negation marker.
