Positive Evidence and Preemption in the Second Language Classroom.
Trahey, Martha; White, Lydia
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v15 n2 p181-203 Jun 1993
It is shown that supplying positive evidence in the second-language (L2) classroom does not necessarily trigger the appropriate L2 value of a parameter of Universal Grammar. The verb movement parameter of Pollock is investigated; results suggest that positive evidence does not preempt the first-language parameter. (27 references) (Author/LB)
