Cultural transmission
While we may inherit physical features such as brown eyes and dark hair from our
parents, we do not inherit their language. We acquire a language in a culture with other
speakers and not from parental genes. An infant born to Korean parents in Korea, but
adopted and brought up from birth by English speakers in the United States, will have
physical characteristics inherited from his or her natural parents, but will inevitably
speak English. A kitten, given comparable early experiences, will produce meow
regardless.
This process whereby a language is passed on from one generation to the next is
described as cultural transmission. It is clear that humans are born with some kind of
predisposition to acquire language in a general sense. However, we are not born with
the ability to produce utterances in a specific language such as English. We acquire our
first language as children in a culture.
