    The thesis highlights external influences on language development. It emphasizes the way family environment influences on children's language development. The higher position in socioeconomic structure reflects in better child's language competence. Educational orientation has a big influence on children's language development and authoritarian education in family environment does not encourage the language competence. The example of speaking in the child's family influences on child's language competence and the mistakes of children are very similar to those of parents. The influence of family environment depends on the extent to which the child's linguistic code is different from collegial organs sayings. Because of the significant implications of the child's language development, children who come from culturally less stimulating environment, are limited to subject areas that are directly tied to their empirical world that is less overlaped with the speech situation in formal education. The family environment influences also on child's overall system capacity that is involved in the process of speech activity and the activities associated with mental activities. The thesis shows that negative influences of family environment have the effect on all planes of language system: phonology, syntax and semantics and are apparent at all stages of language development. The thesis also identifies the belief of many authors who have dealt with the dimensions of language that forms human view of reality. On the basis of theoretical concepts questions that were created speech and language therapists can use to identify socially dependent speech-language deficits.
