The Preference for Modal + Neg: An L2 Perspective Applied to Swedish L1 Children.
Hakansson, Gisela; Collberg, Sheila Dooley
Second Language Research, v10 n2 p95-124 Jun 1994

A syntactic analysis is proposed for four recognized stages in the acquisition of negative word order in Swedish. (Contains 41 references.) (Author/LB)
