Language Development

Biological theory


This view only slightly relates to the nurture side of  the language development argument. The theory itself promotes nature. The area in which it promotes nurture is in the fact that if there is a developmental issue with a child's hearing, language development will be effected.


  • This indicates that a child must hear language used in their environment to produce language correctly.
