There’s a Philly Sign Language Accent

There’s a Philly Sign Language Accent | English Language Learners in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Speech with a drawl, twang, clipped consonants, broad vowels, slurred words or extra diphthongs might give away that the speaker is from the American South, Boston, the Midwest or elsewhere. The spice that a certain region may lend to spoken language can even be strong enough to flavor non-audible language as well. Indeed, American Sign Language (ASL) has its own accents. And like its audible counterpart, one of the strongest regional accents in ASL is that of Philadelphia residents, reports Nina Porzucki for PRI."

Why exposing your children to another language is one of the best things you can do: more capable of empathy

Why exposing your children to another language is one of the best things you can do: more capable of empathy | English Language Learners in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Children who are bilingual or exposed regularly to a second language may be more capable of empathy, a new study found.


"Children in multilingual environments routinely have the opportunity to track who speaks which language, who understands which content and who can converse with whom," said Samantha Fan, leader of the research team and a University of Chicago psychology graduate student, according to the Pacific Standard....

 

Being raised in a multilingual world could mean that the skills used to better focus the brain on more than one task at a time could be how the skill to express empathy is developed, two skills tied into one: focusing effectively on more than one perspective.
