Featured Artwork by Amitesh Shrivastava 👨🏽🎨
acrylic on canvas
54 x 66 inches
"Shrivastava's works engages with the ideas that he describes as “liquidity”, the state of being which allows people to move smoothly between different cultures, experiences and thoughts. That is what allows his expressionistic canvases to be populated, simultaneously, by a rash of scrubby vegetation, unidentified figures and wild animals — none of them conceding an easy narrative..." - Pooja Pillai, The Indian Express
Shrivastava's ongoing solo "Trespassers and Translators," is currently on view until 30 September, 2017.
The word infant comes from the Latin infantem (nominative infants) meaning unable to speak. So those cute small things that don't speak yet is how they got their name. But when does speech start in human development and can infants 'fant' or speak. Before that let's define speech itself. Languages are comprised of the smallest unit called phonemes, short distinctive sound units, like a, t, sh and ch for example. When you combine them together you make morphemes, the smallest units that carry meaning, including words, parts of words like suffixes ..etc. Then you have your grammar, or a system of rules that enables us to communicate with and understand others. For example English has 40 phonemes that make up over a hundred thousand morphemes that give us more than 616,500 words in the Oxford English Dictionary, which included the words 'widdly' and 'woke' in last June's update. Being that language is a set of spoken, written, or signed words that communicate meaning when you combine them, people differed on what constitutes as language versus not. Noam Chomsky's idea of innate learning and ubiquitous grammatical categories says that languages are very similar as they have universal grammar. So the almost 7000 languages all have nouns, verbs and adjectives and we all have an innate genetic ability to learn them through even simple ways like observation. With that being said, infants as young as four months recognize speech and can mimic sounds and mouth movements, but also the ability to understand what's being said to and about them, called receptive language. But before they acquire productive language (forming actual words) they babble, saying random sounds; a stage that ends at 10 months old. Then that's when they lose the ability to hear specific tones from other languages and by one to two years old they start speaking one word sentences. Then 18 months they go from one word a week to one word a day, then soon after they go into two word statements, which now incorporates the final element, grammar since you have to know word goes first. So depending on your definition, morpheme stage or grammar stage, that's what determines when and if infants talk.
Os problemas de aprendizagem constituem uma grande preocupação para muitos pais, já que afetam o rendimento escolar e as relações interpessoais dos seus filhos❤️.Uma criança com dificuldade de aprendizagem, pode ter um nível normal de inteligência, de acuidade visual e auditiva.
