What perspective dominated psychology’s understanding of language development before Chomsky came along? And, how did Chomsky’s theory deviate from previous theories of language? (Refer to the Chomsky chapter 17 in our textbook, the ppt., and the Chomsky reading to help you answer this question.) 2. Does Noam Chomsky support John Locke’s idea of the tabula rasa when it comes to language acquisition? Why or Why not? Please provide specific information from the Ch. 17ppt. in defense of your answer. 3. What did enslaved children on plantations centuries ago do concerning language? And, what is the key difference between pidgin language and creole language (from the reading)? 4.
