APRENDIZADO NA INFÂNCIA – PERGUNTAS E RESPOSTAS

4.

When counting the vocabulary we know, words like the noun “hinge” or the verb “chew” will have the same weight as “house” or “drink”? How much of a compromise to our fluency not knowing “hinge” and “chew” will be? How can we equate in our vocabulary inventory the fact that some words are 20 or 30 times more likely to occur than others?

5.

What weight in our counting shall we give to verbs like “take” and “get”, for which we can easily find more than 10 different meanings? How to include the lexical ambiguity of words in our counting formula?

6.

What if we know for example that “give” means “dar” in Portuguese, and that the meaning of the preposition “in” corresponds most of the times to “em”, but we don’t know that “give in” means “ceder” and “give up” means “desistir”? How do we allow for word combinations in our counting?
