    Elman first aims to give an account of natural language showing how a connectionist system can model its significant features. Using the same network he then goes on to model the acquisition of language by children. This work is described in two papers. His research has been influential outside his specialised field; for example, it figures in a New Scientist feature suggesting that connectionist models can represent children's language learning.
