The State of Emergentism in Second Language Acquisition.
Gregg, Kevin R.
Second Language Research, v19 n2 p95-128 Apr 2003
Discusses "emergenitism," a view of cognition stressing interaction between organism and environment and denying existence of predetermined, domain-specific faculties or capacities. It is an alternative to special nativist theories of the mind, such as theories of universal grammar. rejects arguments raised against "special nativism" and looks at arguments for an emergentist account of second language acquisition.
