The Early Stages in Adult L2 Syntax: Additional Evidence from Romance Speakers.
Vainikka, Anne; Young-Scholten, Martha
Second Language Research, v12 n2 p140-76 Apr 1996
Analyzes data on the acquisition of German by Italian and Spanish speakers. Findings reveal that children learning a first language and adults learning a second language build up syntactic structure in much the same manner, and propose that the weak continuity approach of language acquisition accounts for all instances of syntactic acquisition.
