Abstract:

This book provides an analysis of two current theories of language
acquisition: the theory that acquisition is primarily mediated by
innate properties of language provided by universal grammar, and the
opposing theory is that language is acquired based on the patterns in
the ambient language. A problem not often considered is that these two
theories are confounded because the structures that are frequent
across languages are also typically the most frequent within a
specific language. In addition, the innate theory of language
acquisition is difficult to quantify and qualify. Using
cross-linguistic, corpus, and experimental approaches, this book
attempts to contrast these theories through an examination of the
acquisition of word-final consonants in English.
