    Language Development Seminar

    Contact instructor for CRN.

    Language is one of the most complex systems that humans ever learn, yet why are young children so adept at learning language? Why do some children have difficulty learning language? What do babies learn about language before they are able to talk? What are the roles of experience and innate factors in language acquisition? In this seminar, we will discuss how research has addressed these and other questions about language development. We will examine how children learn about the sounds, meaning, and structure of their native language as well as the theoretical debates surrounding language acquisition.
