The questions of children usually start out as declarative sentences with heightened pitches
or intonations near the end. (Shaffer,et.,al,2002).
Children usually ask what who and where questions before they ask how and when questions. This
is because in order to ask how and why questions, toddlers need to be able to understand abstract thought.
Children usually learn how to form questions in phases.
Children will make two word questions ex.Where kitty?
Children will add helping verbs to the question but willl often reverse them. ex.Where
kitty is going?
Children will form proper questions. ex.Where is the kitty going?
Children will develop negatives in phases much like they do questions.
Children will put a negation in front of the word they want to negate.ex. No kitty.
children will put the negative word into their sentences.ex. That not kitty.
Children will be able to add a negative into a sentence correctly ex. That wasn't a kitty.
Although children develop questions,and negations at differing rates , most children develop
grammatically correct questions and negatives by the time they are four years old ( Shaffer, et.al,2002).
