Jean Piaget was another prominent psychologist who offered yet another take on language acquisition and development. His focus was on child development and the stages children go through to develop and learn.

Language development is intricately entangled with cognitive development. Much discussion and research have been devoted to the question of whether language is necessary for cognition (i.e., whether we need words and semantic structure to think) or whether language is merely an outcome or reflection of growth in mental capacity.

In his book "The Language and Thought of the Child," Piaget describes two functions of children's language: the "egocentric" and the "socialized."
