  <dc:description>In this paper, we will develop some aspects of a psycholinguistic theory that tries to explain how our natural language is acquired. We have divided this paper into three parts: First part: includes a brief review of different theories on language acquisition that are valid today, used as a contrast element. In particular, we will analyze in depth the model R-R (representational redescription) of Karmiloff-Smith, contrasting its cognitive-computational model with our approach. Then, using evolutionary biology as a model, we will address the relevance of a Universal Language existing in socio-cultural reality and its genetic aspects. Second part: it will deal with a possible Genetic Typology of the natural human language elaborated on the base of the theory of the “hidden colors.” Third part: we will highlight the relevance of the Universals, a possible origin of the lexical contextures, and an analysis of the importance of socio-cultural inheritance, all fundamental elements in the acquisition of natural human language.</dc:description>
