The paper describes a neural network model of early language acquisition with an emphasis on how language positively influences the categories with which the child categorizes reality. Language begins when the two separate networks that are responsible for nonlinguistic sensory-motor mappings and for recognizing and repeating linguistic sounds become connected together at 1 year of age. Language makes more similar the internal representations of different inputs that must be responded to with… Expand
