Learning Perspective basics and who
Selective Reinforcement (skinner), Imitation/observational learning (Bandura) modeling
Problems with Learning Perspective

1)little support for parents role in shaping syntax since they correct context not gramm. correctness. 2)novel statements of children (condense sentences to conform to their level of grammatical competence)
support of learning perspective

1 children speak language of parents 2 amount of lexical input related to children's vocab development 3 the more conversational parents are, the more advanced lang development is.
Nativist Approach who and what (biologically programmed to develop lang)PC
Pinker- lang develops spontaneously without conscious effort/formal instruction
Chomsky: children have a LAD
Innate knowledge of grammar allows children to: 4 things pdou
1 percieve regularities in lang production 2 develop hypotheses about these regs 3 often overgeneralize rules 4 universal sequence of lang acq. 1st word 1st bday
nativist approach support
brain specialization, sensitive period hypoth (lennenberg) (immigrant test)or those largely deprived of normal lingustic environment, pidgin language
basic point of interactionist view
What is innate is not any specialized linguistic knowledge or processing skills but a sophisticated brain that matures very slowly and predisposes children to develop similar ideas at about the same age-ideas that they are then motivated to express in speech
communication strategies of caregivers (environmental supports) CMEDR
conversational speech, motherese, expansion, direct interaction, recasting
problems with Nativist approach OD
other young animals can make important phonemic distinctions too, doesnt explain how LAD works, but more a description of lang acq
