Lexical Constraints on Syntactic Acquisition.
Ard, Josh; Gass, Susan M.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v9 n2 p233-51 Jun 1987
Data from responses to a grammaticality judgement test by 26 learners of English as a second language at two proficiency levels were used to investigate syntactic acquisition. Four syntactic structures were examined. Results suggest that less proficient subjects use syntactic strategies, while more proficient learners use semantic-based strategies. (Author/LMO)
