Abstract:

This authoritative textbook is an overview and analysis of current
second language acquisition research, conducted within the generative
linguistic framework. It argues for a role for Universal Grammar in
second language acquisition. Theories as to the role of Universal
Grammar and the extent of language transfer are presented along with
relevant empirical research. Properties of early developmental stage
grammars are examined, as well as the nature of the final outcome of
the acquisition process.

Contents:

1. Universal Grammar and Language Acquisition; 2. Principles of
Universal Grammar in L2 Acquisition; 3. The Initial State; 4. Grammars
Beyond the Initial State: Parameters and Functional Categories; 5. The
Transition Problem, Triggering and Input; 6. Morphological Variability
and the Morphology/Syntax Interface; 7. Argument Structure;
8. Ultimate Attainment: the Nature of the Steady State

Lingfield(s): Language Acquisition, Psycholinguistics
			
Written In: English (Language Code: ENG)
