Vainikka, Anne; Young-Scholten, Martha
Second Language Research, v12 n1 p7-39 Jan 1996
Reviews data on the acquisition of German without formal instruction by native speakers of Korean, Turkish, Italian, and German, on the acquisition of French by English speakers, and of the acquisition of English by speakers of various first languages (L1). Evidence indicates that the sole projections that the learner transfers from the L1 are lexical ones. (72 references) (Author/CK)
