Expectancy for Successive Elements: Key Ingredient to Language Use
Oller, John W., Jr.
Foreign Language Annals, 7, 4, 443-52, May 74

Thus, in teaching a second language, the student must be allowed to take advantage of previously acquired expectations about situations while learning a new grammar of expectancy. (Author/LG)
