 ENG 380 Week 4 Language Acquisition Paper

Our minds work in mysterious ways–or so the saying goes. We have a certain capacity to acquire language. In this assignment, you will explore that capacity by researching language acquisition, bilingualism, and our ability to create language.

Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper in which you analyze our capacity to acquire language. Include the following:




The stages of first language acquisition


A comparison of second language learning and true (or sequential) bilingualism, noting which process is closer to first langauge acquisition and how the other process differs from first language acquisition


Our capacity to create language (language genesis)


Format the entire essay, including title page, citations, and references, according to appropriate course level APA guidelines.  Use the textbook as a source. While there is no minimum number of other sources involved, you may use additional sources besides the text to support your analysis.
