The Comparative Fallacy in Interlanguage Studies: The Case of Systematicity.
Bley-Vroman, Robert
Language Learning, v33 n1 p1-17 Mar 1983
Studies of second language acquisition often employ analytical concepts defined relative to the target language. This practice can be a serious obstacle to investigation of crucial questions about the nature of the learners' languages. This comparative fallacy's drawbacks are illustrated through a framework designed to study interlanguage systematicity and variability. (Author/MSE)
