Understanding the ontogenetically prior development of nonverbal deferred imitation may help illuminate a basic cognitive prerequisite of language acquisition. In fact, at least one influential theorist, namely Piaget, has argued that the roots of language learning can be directly traced to prior developments in nonverbal imitation. A major point in the recent Piaget-Chomsky debate (PiattelliPalmarini, 1980) was whether nonverbal imitation is a developmental foundation for the emergence of language, as Piaget advocates, or whether the two domains, nonverbal imitation and language, are entirely distinct, as Chomsky argues.
