Resetting Universal Grammar Parameters: Evidence from Second Language Acquisition of Subjacency and the Empty Category Principle.
Uziel, Sigal
Second Language Research, v9 n1 p49-83 Feb 1993
A test of a hypothesis about the availability of Universal Grammar principles to adult language learners involved testing predictions about acquisition patterns in Hebrew speakers learning English as a Second Language. Results supported the view that second-language acquisition is a process of parameter reassignment of principles that are indeed fully available to the adult learner. (25 references) (CP)
