Do Second Language Learners Acquire Restrictive Relative Clauses on the Basis of Relational or Configurational Information? The Acquisition of French Subject, Direct Object and Genitive Restrictive Relative Clauses by Second Language Learners.
Hawkins, Roger
Second Language Research, v5 n2 p156-88 Dec 1989
