Sound Forms, Acoustic and Graphic Representations in Learning Competence
Keywords:linguistic competence, phoneme, sound, foreign language, writing, speech
The linguistic competence in mother tongue is built on acoustic materials, i.e. on speech. Mother's linguistic sound is heard by the foetus in early pre-natal terms. After birth a baby is going through mimetical processes to sharpen and upgrade what has already been linguistically conceived. The basic material in acquiring a foreign language, though, is traditionally written: in a foreign language learning process the speech is often reduced to be realized from written texts. Thus the speech is mostly un upgrade of reading, then writing. Such proportion between writing and speech is conditioned by the nature itself of the learning process where writing is naturally preferred as main intellectual tool of acquiring linguistic competence.
