We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Good afternoon,

There are quite a few places where the Minimalist Framework is done (in no
particular order; any comments concerning this inventory are most welcome):

Univ. of Maryland, Harvard, MIT, Boston, CUNY, NYU, Stony Brook Univ.,
Univ. of Massachusetts at Amherst, Chicago, Univ. of Connecticut at Storrs,
Stanford, Univ. of Washington, UCLA, USC LA, UC Santa Cruz, Berkeley,
Cornell, Arizona, Ohio State

However, to the best of my knowledge the vast majority of generative
linguists deal with applying the theory to describing syntactic phenomena.
My question would be: could you recommend any names who specialize in the
application of the MP to explaining first/second language acquisition
and/or language transfer phenomena, rather than descriptive morphosyntax?

Many thanks in advance for responses!

Best wishes and regards,
