In this article, the writer notes that within the context of language awareness, one should be inclined to accept the notion that the human being cannot simply be characterized as an input-output mechanism, though in many isolated cases this may be beneficial. One of the main observational considerations that needs to be taken into account is the aforementioned progression of language awareness from intuition to mastery. The writer points out that Piaget is the researcher credited with devising cognitive theories about child development. The writer discusses that Piaget did not believe that language development was crucial to children in relation to the development of their intellect, and indeed he believed that language development was simply the means a child would use to express himself and not a crucial element of cognitive development overall. The paper then goes on to explain why the author disagrees with Piaget's theories.
