Having gone underground for a few years, once again Chomsky's ideas of language learning are being discussed. [1] A recent book, The Language Lottery (Lightfoot ), readably outlines the theory; several collections report research into its implications (Tavakolian ; Goodluck and Solan ) The idea that explains this is known as Universal Grammar Theory and states that all children are born with an innate ability to acquire, develop, and understand ://   such as universal grammar, then it needs to be associated with the ability to infer a grammar, in the presence of linguistic input from a particular language.

UG is a description of a state of readiness to learn from linguistic data: it is a theory of a particular kind of learning. 1 Port Royal ~jagoldsm/slides/   Universal Grammar or UG has been a popular term since the early s, or more precisely since the publication of Chomskys () Lectures on Government and Binding.

Despite its popularity, however, the term has met diverse reactions. Because UG theory deals with highly abstract linguistic principles, it is mostly comprehensible to   individual natural languages in the course of constructing a the-ory of universal grammar that explains why the whole set of natural languages are the way they are.

Natural languages, English, French and so on, are in fact the data for this theory of natural language.
