Concord in Interlanguage: Efficiency or Priming?
Mellow, J. Dean; Cumming, Alister
Applied Linguistics, v15 n4 p442-73 Dec 1994
Assesses two apparently contradictory factors that may affect the acquisition of grammatical concord in a second language: (1) efficient deletion of redundant elements; and (2) facilitation or priming through repeated marking of grammatical information. The results of a study of written compositions by French and Japanese learners of English support the idea that efficiency and priming perspectives are complementary. (100 references) (MDM)
