New Directions in Theories of Language Acquisition
Edmonds, Marilyn H.
Harvard Educational Review, 46, 2, 175-98, May 76
Discusses the deficiencies of the nativistic explanation of language acquisition, reviews and critiques existing theories of syntax while highlighting the trend toward a semantic description of linguistic development, and argues that a satisfactory account of language acquisition will not emerge until this process is viewed within a larger developmental perspective.
