A Discussion of the Dulay and Burt Studies. Working Papers on Bilingualism, No. 4.
Participants in a seminar series in second language acquisition held at Harvard University discussed three papers by Dulay and Burt ("Goofing: An Indicator of Children's Second Language Learning Strategies,""Should We Teach Children Syntax?", "Natural Sequences in Child Second Language Acquisition"), and developed several questions and issues regarding specific aspects of those papers. Among the issues raised are: (1) universal language processing strategies; (2) statistical discrepancies between the second and third studies; (3) interference in second language acquisition; (4) theoretical model of morpheme acquisition order; (5) morpheme scoring; (6) statistics and data analysis. Each question posed by the group is followed by a response from Dulay and Burt. (DB)
