    A general language learning book is a distillation of decades of scientific language acquisition research and practical experience from people who made the journey before. It’s a record of their insights and lessons learned. More importantly, it recounts the mistakes others have made so those who follow don’t waste their time committing : Stevie D. Based on generative linguistics, language acquisition emerges from a combination of rules which will form grammatical sentences. Generative grammar (proposed by Chomsky in s) arises from an innate universal grammar. Generativists believe that environmental input and language use has no effect on learning : Kim Hua Tan, Vafa Shojamanesh.
