Value of baby talk

Overgeneralitation: extension of the domain of a certain linguistic rule: -imput and feedback- the structure of language changes and is adapted regularly.- systematic changes- exposure to language
Innate hyphotesis: all children can adquire language:-effortessly-in a shor period of time- without being formally taught.   _little imitation is required_reingorcement has a very small role_ active process children say things they have never heard
