The Critical Period for Language Acquisition: Evidence from Second Language Learning.
Snow, Catherine E.; Hoefnagel-Hohle, Marian
Child Development, v49 n4 p1114-28 Dec 1978
The naturalistic acquisition of Dutch by English speakers of different ages was examined longitudinally to test the hypothesis that second language acquisition is most efficient before the age of puberty when cerebral lateralization is complete. Results did not support this critical period hypothesis for language acquisition. (JMB)
