Second Language Acquisition: The Pidginization Hypothesis
Schumann, John H.
Language Learning, 26, 2, 391-408, Dec 76
This paper presents a case study of the untutored acquisition of English by a 33-year-old Costa Rican male. Three causes for his lack of linguistic development over a 10-month period are considered: ability, age, and social and psychological distance. The third of these is seen as the cause. (Author/POP)
