A Theory of Language Learning and Production

Varsha Kushwaha


Language is a system of principles and symbols that is applied for meaningful communication Language learning relates to first-language learning, which learns children learning of their language. Through language, we can express our ideas and view to others. It mentions to the knowing knowledge of rules and being capable to speak about them. Human language is different from communication of animals.

Theories of language production suggest that utterances are built by a mechanism that distinguishes linguistic subject from linguistic frame. Producing language in uttered discussion is not possible without motions. Language production is the production of uttered and scripted language. Language production connects the arranging of linguistic information.

Human language is different because it has characteristics of productive, translation etc. It believes on social learning and convention.  The human beings have evolved a capacity to communicate through language. The capacity to learn a natural language differentiates human being from other beasts, and is generally absorbed during the first decade of life throughout the critical time for language learning. The language system that evolves penetrates everyday life, rendering for an infinite linguistic ability and for the necessary creativity of language.  Development and the mind have done an amazing work resolving many difficult problems in action control, admitting problems of learning, hierarchical hold over serial behaviour.

It is not wonderful that these resolutions are victimized to solve other difficult problems such as pattern of a communication system. We suggest a theory of language of learning and production. The growth of grammatical position and symbols of language become significant through basing in perceptual experience and action system.
