Example text

Communication, however, includes much more than language, so any examination of the pragmatic aspects of language cannot fail to incorporate territories normally beyond the scope of standard linguistic analysis. Communication begins well before language is evident and includes interactions that are clearly outside the child’s developing linguistic competence. As language evolves, the focus of pragmatic analysis shifts to the correspondence between the emergence of linguistic devices and their capacity to signal specific intentions and the sensitivity to socially determined rules of interaction.

Many conceptual foundations could give the appearance of innate language ability without actually instantiating language themselves. The three characteristics that distinguish between the major theoretical positions on first-language acquisition lead to different conjectures about the processes involved in second-language acquisition. In turn, different interpretations of second-language acquisition impact on conceptions of children’s cognitive competence. Therefore, it is worth considering how each of these approaches sets out the parameters of second-language acquisition.

An early acknowledgment of the need to approach language acquisition from both sides was submitted by Bruner (1983). He proposed that the language acquisition device (LAD), the engine of learning for generative linguistics, is accompanied by a language acquisition support system, (LASS), the social, interactive, and cognitive structures that bring the child to language, assure that appropriate interactions take place, and present the information to the child’s conceptual system in ways that are clearly interpretable and conducive to learning.
