Suggested Responses: Students should put the examples of infant speech in the following order: d, c, b, a, because this follows the order of productive language development: babbling, overgeneralized one-word, bilingual mixed speech to name, two-word utterance. Students should point out that the infant's language system includes all words he or she is exposed to, whether monolingual or bilingual, and that these babies sometimes switch their languages in one utterance. Students might also mention that an infant's language system becomes increasingly more complex over time and that infants have a built-in sense of syntax, or word order.
