Parameter Setting in Second Language Phonology and Syntax.
Broselow, Ellen; Finer, Daniel
Second Language Research, v7 n1 p35-59 Feb 1991
Investigation of native Hindi, Japanese, and Korean speakers' acquisition of English phonology and syntax found that, at a certain stage of acquisition, learners arrived at a parameter setting that was midway between the native and target language settings, occurring when the target language employed either a more or less marked setting than the native language.
