Models of Second Language Competence: A Structural Equation Approach.
Sang, F.; And Others
Language Testing, v3 n1 p54-79 Jun 1986

New evidence, showing divergent structures in language ability subgroups and different influences of teaching styles on different language components, better supports a multidimensional model of foreign language ability.
