Contrast and Construction in a Parameter-Setting Model of L2 Acquisition.
Flynn, Suzanne
Language Learning, v37 n1 p19-62 Mar 1987

The elicited responses of adult native speakers of Spanish and adult native speakers of Japanese were examined. The head-initial/head-final parameter was the principle explored. (Author/LMO)
