Information Carrying Words


When we talk to children, there are lots of clues in the environment and through an adult’s use of body language to support their understanding of what is being said.
Information Carrying Words are the words within a sentence that carry meaning. These are the words that a child has to understand without clues. There are often lots of words within a sentence that do not carry meaning.
In order for a word in a sentence to be considered an information carrying word there must be an alternative choice for them to select.
