Abstract

The chapter on child language acquisition offers us a world beyond the rather reductive Skinner versus Chomsky debates that have come to dominate A Level English Language. Looking at work on cognitive-functionalism and constructions in speech, it charts the fascinating development of new ideas about how and why children acquire language and offers fresh approaches to the topic.
