Epilogue: Analytic Study of the Tadoma Method-Language Abilities of Three Deaf-Blind Subjects

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript

Abstract

This chapter presents one of Carol Chomsky's classic papers, which encompasses the title of the present volume - the idea that children develop rich grammars from poor inputs. The paper reports a careful longitudinal analysis of language growth in cases that constitute extreme examples of the Poverty of the Stimulus: children that are both deaf and blind from a very early age. Notwithstanding such severe deprivation, language growth unfolds in essentially a normal way, matching the levels of production and understanding of normal children of the same age.
