Gordon’s Attack

There are strong evidence supporting innate knowledge: the children whose parental input was unstructured Pidgin languages still acquired structured Creole language. In this case the parents cannot provide meaningful feedback.

(My criticism) In B&S the use of MacWhinney’s claim that low frequency events do not necessarily imply they aren’t important (1982) has contradicting implications: this implies the children actually have the innate ability to avoid being misled by low frequencies.
