What roles do nature and nurture play in childrens language development?
In order to respond to this question, you will need to do the following:
Describe how children acquire the components of language (phonological, syntactic, semantic and pragmatic). For example, how do children acquire phonology and understand how sounds represent meaning (semantics) and rules of putting words together to form sentences (syntax)?
Discuss the role nature and nurture play in supporting the development of each of these components. In order to do this, you will need to draw on one or two relevant theoretical perspectives.
