Asymmetrical Knowledge of Ungrammaticality in SLA Theory.
Birdsong, David
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v16 n4 p463-73 Dec 1994
Addresses the argument that access to Universal Grammar in second-language acquisition implies an asymmetrical knowledge of ungrammaticality. The author attempts to prove that the asymmetry position is conceptually defective and that the evidence for it is inconclusive, inappropriate, and contradicted by other data.
