Abstract

Development is a serial changes within a complex dynamic system. During development, children reach and pass different stages while their dynamical development systems change their states. We hypothesize that in a developmental process, each stage can be accounted as a stable point and the system can be considered multi-stable due to different stages of development. We propose a dynamical model for language development which can explain some developmental disorders in this field, such as pragmatics impairment in autistic children.
