Well-Formed vs. Ill-Formed Strings in L2 Metalingual Tasks: Specifying Features of Grammaticality Judgements.
Hedgcock, John
Second Language Research, v9 n1 p1-21 Feb 1993
Learners' grammaticality reactions emerge through cognitive processes and relate to the nature of the linguistic stimulus. Discussion of such metalinguistic judgments, particularly learners' tolerance of ill-formedness, attempts to clarify established perspectives, arguing that specific aspects of test strings may influence the saliency of certain malformations, thereby sytematically affecting decision making.
