‘A Video Instead of a Curse Word’ by Naomi Epstein

Naomi Epstein’s latest blog post is titled “A Video Instead of a Curse Word”.

Naomi says, “In all the courses I have studied related to normal and abnormal language development (for my degree in education of the deaf) and those related to second/foreign language acquisition (my degree in EFL) there was one point on which there was perfect agreement. The only situation in which new vocabulary is remembered after a single exposure is when the exposure is truly memorable. That is why curse words are picked up and retained  so easily!”
