Language Evolution and Child Language Acquisition

The course comprises both phylo- and ontogenetic aspects of the development of human language, with a focus on the latter.

It provides a basic understanding of available evolutionary models of the emergence of human language.

Further, our current knowledge of child language acquisition is discussed and problematised by applying the rasterised view of a number of theoretical paradigms, particularly constructivism/emergentism and generativism.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
