Discussion Lists. The Adult English Language electronic discussion list is sponsored by the National Institute for Literacy and moderated by staff at CAELA. Discussions focus on issues related specifically to adults learning English. Participants include ESL teachers, program administrators, policy makers, and other stakeholders who share resources, ideas, news, and concerns related to adult ESL. Where a child can learn a language relatively easily, language learning in adulthood can be a difficult task. This article examines the difficulties that adults can face in learning a language and demonstrates that some of an adult's innate weaknesses can actually be an advantage.
language acquisition,coupled with comparative linguistic studies, led to the Principles and Parameters (P&P) framework (Chomsky The present book is a study of language development in chil-dren. From a biological perspective, the development of language, documents evidence that child language and adult language.
