Suggested Responses: Students should describe how cultural practices and traditions can affect babbling and gesturing and the types of first words that are learned. They should present the ways that bilingualism influences the "mental dictionary" and word order. Students may highlight that these differences should be thought of as just this - differences - and not an indication of deficit, even if the timeline of language development looks somewhat different across different cultural or linguistic backgrounds.
