Yesterday we had an intense class: we discussed Chomsky's theory of First Language Acquisition. I hope that by now UG, principles, parameters, generative grammar, core grammar and marked periphery are familiar terms.
For next class you should read the chapter by Pinker "Baby born talking describes heaven". Also, I would like you to write a couple of paragraphs reflecting on everything we discussed yesterday (Chomsky's Nativist Position).
Yesterday we decided on the date for the first term test... we voted on it!! The test will be in two weekts, on June 16th. All the topics studied so far will be included, with the exception of the definitions of language, teaching and learning.
