Hulk, Aafke; Muller, Natascha
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v3 n3 p227-44 Dec 2000
Suggests that in acquiring two languages from birth, bilingual children separate their grammars from very early on. Focuses on the acquisition of syntax in a generative framework. Argues that cross-linguistic influence can occur if an interface level between two modules of grammar is involved, and the two languages overlap at the surface level (Author/VWL)
