The UG Paradox in L2 Acquisition.
Clahsen, Harald; Muysken, Pieter
Second Language Research, v5 n1 p1-29 Jun 1989
Suggests that differences between first- and second-language learners are due to principles of universal grammar (UG) that guide first language (L1), but not second language (L2) acquisition. This view can be reconciled with the idea that L2 learners can use UG principles to some extent in evaluating target sentences. (49 references) (Author/VWL)
