  1. The Critical Period Hypothesis in Second Language Acquisition: A Statistical Critique and a Reanalysis

    Delineating the scope of the critical period hypothesis. First, the age span for a putative critical period for language acquisition has been delimited in different ways in the literature .Lenneberg's critical period stretched from two years of age to puberty (which he posits at about 14 years of age) , whereas other scholars have drawn the cutoff point at 12, 15, 16 or 18 years of age .

  2. Critical period hypothesis

    The critical period hypothesis is a theory within the field of linguistics and second language acquisition that claims a person can only achieve native-like fluency in a language before a certain age. It is the subject of a long-standing debate in linguistics and language acquisition over the extent to which the ability to acquire language is biologically linked to developmental stages of the ...

  3. Critical periods for language acquisition: New insights with particular

    In bilingualism research, the CPH has received a somewhat mixed response, with some researchers plainly denying that critical periods constrain language acquisition (e.g., Bialystok & Kroll, Reference Bialystok and Kroll 2018) and others having 'little doubt' that language acquisition is subject to critical period effects (Meisel, Reference ...

    Most importantly, they clarify the shape of the well-attested critical period for second-language acquisition: a plateau followed by a continuous decline. The end of the plateau period must be due to changes in late adolescence rather than childhood, whether they are biological, social, or environmental.

  5. Frontiers

    Introduction. The Critical Period Hypothesis (CPH), as proposed by [], that nativelike proficiency is only attainable within a finite period, extending from early infancy to puberty, has generally been accepted in language development research, but more so for first language acquisition (L1A) than for second language acquisition (L2A).In the context of L2A, there are two parallel facts that ...

This significant difference between L1A and L2A is explained by the Critical Period Hypothesis (CPH). The CPH states that for language acquisition, either first language (L1) or second language (L2), there is a ...

  11. Critical Periods

    A critical period is a bounded maturational span during which experiential factors interact with biological mechanisms to determine neurocognitive and behavioral outcomes. In humans, the construct of critical period (CP) is commonly applied to first-language (L1) and second-language (L2) development. Some language researchers hold that during a ...

  12. PDF Second Language Acquisition and the Critical Period Hypothesis

    If there is a critical period for second language acquisition, then logically there is also one for first language acquisition, and the answers to questions about language processing take a clear direction. One must be prudent, therefore, in accepting the hypothesis for a critical period in second language acquisition.

    The critical-period hypothesis for second-language acquisition was tested on data from the 1990 U.S. Census using responses from 2.3 million immigrants with Spanish or Chinese language backgrounds. The analyses tested a key prediction of the hypothesis, namely, that the line regressing second-language attainment on age of immigration would be ...

    Age and the critical period hypothesis. In the field of second language acquisition (SLA), how specific aspects of learning a non-native language (L2) may be affected by when the process begins is referred to as the 'age factor'. Because of the way age intersects with a range of social, affective, educational, and experiential variables ...

    In second language acquisition research, the critical period hypothesis (cph) holds that the function between learners' age and their susceptibility to second language input is non-linear. This paper revisits the indistinctness found in the literature with regard to this hypothesis's scope and predictions. Even when its scope is clearly delineated and its predictions are spelt out, however ...

    Humans' ability to acquire language is taken to be a preeminent reflection of the phenomenal capacities that their brains are endowed with. Accordingly, it is an axiomatic fact that language is species-specific and mirrors the "human essence" as the following line of thought purports: "when we study human language, we are approaching what some might call "the human essence", the ...

    Simultaneous acquisition of five languages, in early childhood, is a phenomenon of success in light of Lenneberg's theory of Critical Period Hypothesis (CPH) (1967). However, Lenneberg's CPH is challenged when Turkish is analysed as a chronological L7, acquired successfully in adulthood to nativelike proficiency.
