Gordon’s Attack

Negative evidence and innateness are two orthogonal issues: even with reliable negative evidence we might need innate knowledge to learn a “human” language (which is different from the formal languages)

B&S’s results showed substantial proportion of the ill-formed utterances were not responded, and substantial proportion of the well-formed utterances received feedback pertinent to the ill-formed ones. It is not clear without innate knowledge how children knew which to ignore.
