Those columns imply that everyone thinks either everything is innate or nothing is, and that that's all that's worth talking about. Someone please fix.

Agreed, this is misleading and also inaccurate (some people belong in multiple columns, others in neither). That said, not sure there's a perfect way to divide people up. Some options: (1) first/child vs. second language acquisition; (2) theoretical framework (e.g., generative grammar, constructivist, statistical learning); (3) by age of children that they study (infants, young children, older children, adults); (4) don't divide people up at all; just make 'Language Acquisition Researchers' a category, and turn this into a set category page. The latter would be the best solution, I think... Ishkibib (talk) 00:13, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
