When English reading performance and nonverbal IQ are factored out, results show that accuracy of grammaticality judgement decreases as AoA increases, until around age 8, thus showing the unique effect of AoA on grammatical judgement in early learners. No such effects were found in those who acquired BSL after age 8. These late deaf like me pdf download appear to have first language proficiency in English instead, which may have been used to scaffold learning of BSL as a second language later in life.
Deaf native signers, early and late learners judged BSL sentence grammaticality. Early learners performed worse the later they were exposed to BSL. Late learners’ performance was not affected by age of learning BSL. Unique effect of age of learning BSL found in early learners. Prelingually deaf late learners may benefit from first language competence in English.

In the sonnet, the speaker bemoans his status as an outcast and failure but feels better upon thinking of his beloved.
However, Shakespeare did not only create a pattern of line rhymes. As Frank explains in his article Shakespeare repeats the word “state” three times throughout the poem with each being a reference to something different. Paul Ramsey points out the line three specifically as “one of the most perturbed lines in our language”. He specifically points out stressed syllables, “troub-“, “deaf”, and “heav’n”, saying they are “jarringly close together” and that “the ‘heav’n with’ is probably the most violent example in the sonnets of a trochee without a preceding verse-pause The heaping of stress, the harsh reversal, the rush to a vivid stress — all enforce the angry anti-religious troubled cry. Sonnet 29 was written about the young man.
Paglia refers to this section of the poem as a “list of half-imaginary grievances. Frank seems to agree with her statement of “half imaginary” since he believes the Speaker wills his own misery. As the poem moves from the octave to the sestet, Frank makes note of the Speaker’s “radical movement from despair to alert”. Frank believes that the last sestet, however, is not as “happy” as some may believe. Paglia, however, takes several different views on the poem.
For example, she does not actually come out and accuse the Speaker of causing his own suffering. The final few lines, however, are where Paglia differs the most from Frank. Paglia feels that the “love” of the Speaker’s has been restored and that he has received a “spiritual wealth”. The once jealous and desperate Speaker has now found solace in love knowing that love “dims all material things”. But they do pretend to be, and therein is the difference. She goes on to clarify this difference, or what sets sonnet 29 apart from most love object-centered sonnets of the time. This is to say that though most poetry of the time was at least disguised to be about the object of the speaker’s affection, this sonnet does not even attempt to do so.
According to Sasager, it is clear that this poem is speaker-focused and about the emotions and experiences of the speaker, not that of the beloved. As discussed by other critics, Sasager addresses the lack of “when then” structure saying “the poem shifts to representing a particular moment: not a past moment, but now. She makes a point to say this differs notably from other poems of the time. Paglia and Frank have similar views on the religious references made throughout the poem. This creates another contrast in the poem. The once deaf heaven that caused the Speaker’s prayers to be unanswered is now suddenly able to hear.
