Language acquisition

From Teflpedia

Language acquisition refers to the processes through which learners acquire language. In principle, it refers to first language acquisition, which studies infants’ acquisition of their native language, whereas second language acquisition deals with acquisition of additional languages.

Linguists Noam Chomsky and Eric Lenneberg have argued that children have innate, language-specific abilities that facilitate language learning.
