Lois Bloom

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses word learning in the context of the whole child. It states that Lois Bloom stresses how word learning forms a part of language development and how language emerges out of a nexus of other developments in emotion, cognition, and social connectedness. It adds that Bloom presents her views as an antidote to the MIT perspective, which highlights a language acquisition device instead of a real child. It discusses that Bloom consistently argues that language development must not be studied in isolation as the acquisition of a formal system.

Keywords:   word learning, Lois Bloom, language development, social connectedness, MIT perspective
