The present dissertation is a study of language development in children. From a biological perspective, the development of language, as the development of any other organic systems, is an interaction between internal and external factors; specifically, between the child's internal knowledge of linguistic structures and the external linguistic experience he receives. Drawing insights from the study of biological evolution, we put forth a quantitative model of language acquisition that make this… Expand
