1.Who is responsible for what is known as “language acquisition device ” What are the basic principles behind this thought on language development?
Weegy: Noam Chomsky- is responsible for what is known as “language acquisition device”. ** the language acquisition device was said to be the seat of universal syntax shared by all humans. [ This theory of a congenital basis for formulating language, regardless of the native language spoken around the infant, has been hotly criticized by behaviorists and others who favor the notion that environment and nurturing are responsible for language acquisition. The LAD theory posits that a set list of acceptable sentence structures — that is, possible combinations of subjects, verbs, objects, and modifiers — are known to children at birth. Though children rarely perfect grammar spoken during their early years, the LAD theory argues that with the sentence fragments and run on sentences of ordinary human speech and the innate universal grammar rules, children are able to flesh out a full language in just a few short years. According to the LAD theory, a child does not pass its early years just meaninglessly repeating words and phrases, but in observing grammar variations and supplemental rules to construct new variations on sentence structure. ] (More)
