Number/Person Errors in an Information-Processing Perspective: Implications for Form-Focused Instruction.
Zalewski, Jan P.
TESOL Quarterly, v27 n4 p691-703 Win 1993
English-as-a-Second-Language data show number and person play a role in establishing cognitive continuity of textual occurrences. In such cases, number/person errors are global, affecting text comprehension. Global grammar proposed here can present language features that are to be learned in contexts that render those features cognitively and communicatively salient, facilitating second-language acquisition of features that are difficult to learn.
