The reading assignment for this week reviews the theory of Universal Grammar in explaining how we acquire language. Syntax: A Generative Introduction goes on to discuss the concept of the universals of language, which are properties that all languages of the world share. Imagining for a moment that you do not think the theory of Universal Grammar is plausible, what other theories or explanations could account for the existence of these universals? Explain your answer.
Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
