On the Transfer of Parametric Values in L2 Development.
Eubank, Lynn
Language Acquisition, v3 n3 p183-208 1993-94
Challenges the idea that grammatical representations in second-language development are parametric values that are transferred from the learner's native language, offering learner data incompatible with this view. Advocates a weak transfer model in which lexical and functional projections transfer, but morphology-driven values of features like the strength of agreement do not. (41 references) (MDM)
