The purpose of this paper is to address the confusion over the meaning of the term generalization when it is used in the literature on language disorders. Three distinct definitions of language generalization are proposed corresponding to three prominent theoretic approaches to language acquisition and teaching. The three definitions are compared and their implications for language teaching are explored.
