Methods of Morpheme Quantification: Their Effect on the Interpretation of Second Language Data.
Pica, Teresa
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v6 n1 p69-78 Fall 1983
Results of a study of two methods of morpheme quantification--one by suppliance in obligatory contexts, the other by target-like use--produced substantially different percentages of accuracy for subjects' production of the morphemes progressive "-ing," progressive auxiliary, and past irregular. This demonstrates that, as a consequence of applying different analyses to the same database, conflicting interpretations about subjects' interlanguage can occur. (SL)
