Description and Explanation in Interlanguage Syntax: State of the Art.
Rutherford, William E.
Language Learning, v34 n3 p127-55 Sep 1984
Discusses the current approaches to interlanguage syntax, focusing on the goal of finding consistency and pattern in syntactic variation. Some themes contributing to descriptive approaches include: the transition from morphosyntax acquisition studies to those of more complex syntax, the emergence of syntax from discourse, explicitness, and the investigation of language "process" as well as language product.
