The Effects of Linguistic Environment on the Second-Language Acquisition of Grammatical Rules.
Ellis, Rod
Applied Linguistics, v9 n3 p257-74 Sep 1988
Longitudinal data regarding three children's learning of English as a second language in a classroom setting support the hypothesis that the distribution of grammatical variants in learner speech is sensitive to linguistic context. Results suggest that the learners acquired the target language variants in "pronoun contexts" before "noun contexts." (Author/CB)
