Later, after the learner has overheard and assimilated the content of the MST, in different contexts and with repetition, imitation certainly plays a part. In our view, imitation and overhearing are functions of the same phenomena that are facilitated by the actions of the mirror neurons and neurophysiological processes (we further elaborate on this in Chapter 3). To summarize, soliloquy in MST presents the learner with language models (incorporating elements of articulation, semantics, syntax, and pragmatic meaning—see Chapters 3 and 5) that are overheard, assimilated, and processed in the neural imaging circuits, “made ready” for later imitation, and made possible by the development of the articulatory capacity of the child.
But MST differs from motherese in significant ways. 1 we compare motherese to MST. 1. Comparing Motherese to MST Š The language of MST is not simplified in vocabulary, articulation, grammar, or syntax. It is adult language in form and structure. It may have elements of motherese—particularly those of exaggerated intonation or prosody, emphasis, and repetition. These elements are included to engage (but not require) the attention of the child. The language of MST is expressly produced for the child to overhear formal and complex forms of speech, with the intention that they will be assimilated in the child’s awareness and eventually imitated.
What are its mechanics, dynamics, and sensitivities? The senior author has been contemplating these questions for some time. He began to consider the formulation of concepts and techniques to improve the language functioning in populations of children at risk as early as 1963. He began with a consideration of the succession of events leading to the acquisition of speech, both receptive and expressive, and the mastery of expressive aspects of enunciation, words, and sentences. Many educators and specialists in speech and language development agreed that there was a need to intervene intensively to help children—particularly those from minority groups where their primary language exposure was not the standard mode of expression in the larger culture in which they functioned, especially in school.
