Chronological and Stylistic Aspects of Second Language Acquisition of Consonant Clusters.
Major, Roy C.
Language Learning, v44 n4 p655-80 Dec 1994
Tests a model of second-language phonological acquisition that proposes a hierarchical relationship between language-specific transfer processes and universal development processes in terms of chronology and style. This was accomplished through an investigation of the consonant cluster production of four Brazilian learners of English. Claims of the model regarding chronology were supported. (57 references) (LR)
