Human Growth And Development Discussions

Please read assignment carefully you must use text book attached Chapter 3. Response is for a discussion must be 200-400 words 

Topic: Language Acquisition

There are two major theoretical perspectives of language development, as described in Chapter 3 (see section on Biological and Environmental Influences).

1) Chomsky’s “nativist” perspective

2) the behavioral “learning” perspective

You might find it useful to seek additional information about these perspectives before posting your response. 

1. USING AN EXAMPLE, and IN YOUR OWN WORDS, briefly describe each of these two perspectives. HOW do we learn language according to each of these perspectives? 

2. Which of these perspectives best explains how children might “make up” words like “swimmed” or “teached”? (And I don’t mean just any made up words – I really mean words that are “wrong” in the way that words like “swimmed” or “goed” are “wrong”.)

Be sure to tell us WHY the perspective you choose provides a better explanation.

3. Is one of these theoretical perspectives by itself sufficient to explain how people learn language? Provide evidence for your answer.  

IMPORTANT: When providing evidence for your answers, you must cite the textbook where appropriate by listing the author and page number(s).
