SPECIAL ISSUE: A REVIEW OF "THE POVERTY OF STIMULUS ARGUMENT"
Edited by Nancy Ritter

This issue focuses on innateness, specifically with respect to
discussing, debating, and critiquing the plausibility of the poverty
of stimulus argument and the claim that certain kinds of knowledge
cannot be learned. This topic is presented in the form of a discussion
paper by Geoffrey Pullum & Barbara Scholz with responding articles by
various contributors.

This double issue is an intellectual interchange to specifically
address the merits of the poverty of stimulus argument as a compelling
reason to adopt innateness, and moreover, to adopt the notion that the
language module is unique as compared with other modules of the brain.
