Making inferences using idioms
Why is this important?
Inferencing is a key strand in the development of language understanding. Idioms are a more advanced form of non-literal abstract language processing. Linking them together increases the complexity of linguistic understanding required. However, without understanding this level of language complexity, children find it difficult to get beyond the literal interpretation.
