Variable Competence and Performance in Child Second Language Acquisition.
Flanigan, Beverly Olson
Second Language Research, v7 n3 p220-32 Oct 1991
Studies the elicited and naturalistic speech of elementary school English-as-a-Second-Language students and argues that variability exists in the language acquisition process but is not a necessary component of mental competence. Implications for the teaching of grammar to children in an academic context are examined. (32 references) (JL)
