Product Overview

It is a simple observation that children make mistakes when they learn a language. Yet, to the trained eye, these mistakes are far from random; in fact, they closely resemble perfectly grammatical utterances by adults--who speak other languages. This type of error analysis suggests a novel view of language learning: children are born with a fixed set of hypotheses about language--Chomskys Universal Grammar--and these hypotheses compete to match the childs ambient language in a Darwinian fashion. The book presents evidence for this perspective from the study of childrens words and grammar, and how language changes over time. *Author: Yang, Charles D. *Series Title: Oxford Linguistics *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 192 *Publication Date: 2003/03/27 *Language: English *Dimensions: 6.14 x 9.21 x 0.56 inches
