The Verb-Movement Parameter in Second Language Acquisition.
White, Lydia
Language Acquisition, v1 n4 p337-60 1990-91
Investigates effects of instruction on parameter resetting in second-language acquisition, where the first and second language differ as to the settings they adopt for verb movement. The question addressed is whether instruction on one of a cluster of properties associated with lack of verb movement in English generalizes to another property associated with lack of movement.
