Universal grammar? Or prerequisites for natural language?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (5):522-523 (2008)
Abstract
This commentary aims to highlight what exactly is controversial about the traditional Universal Grammar (UG) hypothesis and what is not. There is widespread agreement that we are not born that language universals exist, that grammar exists, and that adults have domain-specific representations of language. The point of contention is whether we should assume that there exist unlearned syntactic universals that are arbitrary and specific to Language
