LIN 100 – RESEARCH PAPER 1
You have been reading about and discussing child language acquisition. In this paper you will use this knowledge to analyze the case of a “wild child;” that is, a child that had been deprived of human interaction from the age of one until the age of 13.
Your paper should be 6 pages in length to comply with the requirements for formal WI course assignments; use a 12 point Times Roman fond, double-spaced. I provide an approximate number of pages for each question.
Make sure that you answer all questions. You may use the materials posted on Bb or any outside source; you must include a reference list, which includes all materials used in your paper. All quotes or paraphrases need to be followed by the name of the author/organization and the page number if you quote from a text. Use APA format. Note: You must watch the documentary “Genie – Secret of the Wild Child” posted in “course content.”
The first publish of the paper is due on October 21, 2022. Use turnitin on Bb to submit your papers.
The following are the questions that you need to answer in your paper:
1. What do you think are necessary conditions for a child to acquire language? Why is talking directly to babies so important for their language development and later academic success. (ca. 1 page)
2. What does the Critical Period Hypothesis claim? Give a definition and an explanation, e.g., brain development and language development. (ca. 1 page)
3. Give a detailed account of Genie’s case. What happened to her before she was admitted to the Children’s Hospital? What happened at the hospital, and how did Genie respond to the treatments? What happened after the money for the research was cut off? Why was the funding cut off. (ca.1 page).
4. What were the characteristics of Genie’s speech? Give details such as pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar (ca. ½ page)
5. Apply the Critical Period Hypothesis to Genie’s case. Can it explain why Genie never learned to speak fluently? Or are there also other factors that could have played a role? (ca. 1 page)
6. In your opinion, did the research/treatment help Genie? Explain your answer. What scientific insights did the research provide? (ca. 1 page).
7. The team of doctors who worked with Genie was sued for submitting to “outrageous and excessive” testing. Do you agree? Did the research get in the way of helping Genie? (ca. ½ page)
