Most of us know a little about how babies learn to talk. From the time infants are born, they  hear language because their parents talk to them all the time. Between the ages of seven and ten  months, most infants begin to make sounds. They repeat the same sounds over and over again. This  is called babbling. When babies babble, they are practicing their language.

What happens, though, to children who cannot hear? How do deaf children learn to  communicate? Recently, doctors have learned that deaf babies babble with their hands. Laura Ann  Petitto, a psychologist, observed three hearing infants with English-speaking parents and two deaf  infants with deaf parents using American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate. Dr. Petitto  studied the babies three times: at 10, 12, and 14 months. During this time, children really begin to  develop their language skills.

After watching and videotaping the children for several hundred hours, the psychologist and  her assistants made many important observations. For example, they saw that the hearing children  made varied motions with their hands. However, there appeared to be no pattern to these motions.  The deaf babies also made different movements with their hands, but these movements were more  consistent and deliberate. The deaf babies seemed to make the same hand movements over and over  again. During the four-month period, the deaf babies’ hand motions started to resemble some basic  hand-shapes used in ASL. The children also seemed to prefer certain hand-shapes.

Hearing infants start first with simple syllable babbling, then put more syllables together to  sound like real sentences and questions. Apparently, deaf babies follow this same pattern, too. First,  they repeat simple handshapes. Next, they form some simple hand signs and use these movements  together to resemble ASL sentences.

Linguists believe that our ability for language is innate. In other words, humans are born with  the capacity for language: It does not matter if we are physically able to speak or not. Language can  be expressed in different ways for instance, by speech or by sign. Dr. Petitto believes this theory and  wants to prove it. She plans to study hearing children who have one deaf parent and one hearing  parent. She wants to see what happens when babies have the opportunity to learn both sign language  and speech. Does the human brain prefer speech? Some of these studies of hearing babies who have  one deaf parent and one hearing parent show that the babies babble equally with their hands and  their voices. They also produce their first words, both spoken and signed, at about the same time.  More studies in the future may prove that the sign system of the deaf is the physical equivalent of  speech.

PART 3. Read the text below and decide which option (A, B, C, or D) best fits each of  the numbered gaps. Write your answers on the Answer Sheet. (2.0 pts)


No student of a foreign language needs to be told that grammar is complex. By changing  word sequences and by adding a range of auxiliary verbs and suffixes, we are able to communicate  tiny variations in meaning. We can turn a statement into a question, state whether an action has  taken place or is soon to take place, and perform many other word tricks to convey subtle  differences in meaning. Nor is this complexity inherent to the English language. All languages, even  those of so-called 'primitive' tribes have clever grammatical components. The Cherokee pronoun  system, for example, can distinguish between 'you and I', 'several other people and I' and 'you,  another person and I'. In English, all these meanings are summed up in the one, crude pronoun 'we'.  Grammar is universal and plays a part in every language, no matter how widespread it is. So  the question which has baffled many linguists is - who created grammar?

At first, it would appear that this question is impossible to answer. To find out how grammar  is created, someone needs to be present at the time of a language's creation, documenting its  emergence. Many historical linguists are able to trace modern complex languages back to earlier  languages, but in order to answer the question of how complex languages are actually formed, the  researcher needs to observe how languages are started from scratch. Amazingly, however, this is  possible.

Some of the most recent languages evolved due to the Atlantic slave trade. At that time,  slaves from a number of different ethnicities were forced to work together under colonizer's rule.  Since they had no opportunity to learn each other's languages, they developed a make-shift language called a pidgin. Pidgins are strings of words copied from the language of the landowner.  They have little in the way of grammar, and in many cases it is difficult for a listener to deduce  when an event happened, and who did what to whom.[A] Speakers need to use circumlocution in  order to make their meaning understood.[B] Interestingly, however, all it takes for a pidgin to  become a complex language is for a group of children to be exposed to it at the time when they learn  their mother tongue.[C] Slave children did not simply copy the strings of words uttered by their  elders; they adapted their words to create a new, expressive language.[D] Complex grammar  systems which emerge from pidgins are termed creoles, and they are invented by children.

Further evidence of this can be seen in studying sign languages for the deaf. Sign languages  are not simply a series of gestures; they utilize the same grammatical machinery that is found in  spoken languages. Moreover, there are many different languages used worldwide. The creation of  one such language was documented quite recently in Nicaragua. Previously, all deaf people were  isolated from each other, but in 1979 a new government introduced schools for the deaf. Although  children were taught speech and lip reading in the classroom, in the playgrounds they began to  invent their own sign system, using the gestures that they used at home. 


It was basically a pidgin. Each child used the signs differently, and there was no consistent grammar. However, children who joined the school later, when this inventive sign system was  already around, developed a quite different sign language. Although it was based on the signs of the  older children, the younger children's language was more fluid and compact, and it utilized a large  range of grammatical devices to clarify meaning. What is more, all the children used the signs in the  same way. A new creole was born. Some linguists believe that many of the world's most established  languages were creoles at first. The English past tense -ed ending may have evolved from the verb  'do'. 'It ended' may once have been 'It end-did'. Therefore, it would appear that even the most  widespread languages were partly created by children. Children appear to have innate grammatical  machinery in their brains, which springs to life when they are first trying to make sense of the world  around them. Their minds can serve to create logical, complex structures, even when there is no  grammar present for them to copy.
