Babies, buzzsaws and blueprints: commentary on review article by Sabbagh & Gelman

Abstract

The review article by S&G seems to me to take a very useful stance: basically friendly but gently quizzical. My linguistics doctoral seminar gave their review the same reception; we enjoyed many of the insights but thought that a few of the assumptions, mostly ones that are common in certain types of language acquisition studies, should be respectfully challenged.
