Language Acquisition According to Innateness Hypothesis       According to Chomsky, the child is born with a blueprint in his brain. This faculty is called Language Acquisition Device "LAD". Thus, Human beings are genetically pre-programmed to acquire a language even before they are exposed to (the) language. In fact, there are three main characteristics of LAD. First, LAD is species specific; only human beings are endowed with this faculty while other species are not. Second, *LAD will never help with learning math or biology*, it specific for acquiring language only. Third, it pre-structures the language properties in the brain such as the Universal Grammar "UG", *this property does not refer to a grammar book but to the grammar in the brain*.  Furthermore, the child is exposed to language experience due to Primary Linguistic Data "PLD". This PLD triggers the LAD with the first exposure. Therefore, LAD would never operate without Linguistic exposure.

What that Chomsky who said that? It sounds strange. There are not many things in the world that can be used in only one way and don't have wonderful siude effects. May be there is not such a thing.
