There are many theories and researches based on people’s observation of how language happens to children at home and how children are able to speak such complex sentences of their home language. Children at a very early age start communicating flawlessly in the languages that are spoken in their homes. They are effortlessly able to express what they feel, they are curious to know how things happen, they have the ability to question and they know how to reason and analyze situations without any kind of formal education. Language is not only a means of communication but it helps in building up of other cognitive abilities in the child. Therefore, it is important to understand the process by which language evolves in the child.
