Carroll, Susanne; Swain, Merrill
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v15 n3 p357-86 Sep 1993
The relative effects of various types of negative feedback on the acquisition of the English dative alternation by 100 adult Spanish-speaking learners of English as a Second Language were investigated. Results suggest that adult learners can and do use feedback to learn specific and abstract linguistic generalizations. (75 references) (Author/LB)
