Theoretical Perspectives Nature vs. Nurture

Nativist

Theorist Noam Chomsky

Nature

"Emphasizes inborn or innate human capabilities" (Otto, 2010, p. 28).

It is natural for humans to gain knowledge based on certain parts of the brain that can tell the difference of language in different cultures.

Interactionist

Theorist Vygotsky

Children obtain language through interaction.

Speech originates from social settings.

Adult interaction is vital in the communication process.

Cognitive Developmentalist

Theorist Jean Piaget

Nature-Object Permanence

For language to develop there must be cognitive growth and development.

Behaviorist

Theorist B.F. Skinner

Nurture- Operant Conditioning

A child's mind is considered a "blank slate".

"learning occurs due to associations established between stimuli, responses, and events that occur after the response behavior" (Otto, 2010, p. 32),
