Grammatical Knowledge and Memorized Chunks. A Response to Ellis.
Ioup, Georgette
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v18 n3 p355-60 Sep 1996
Disagrees with Ellis's claim (1996) that learning the grammatical word class of a particular word, and learning grammatical structures more generally, involves in "large part" the automatic implicit analysis of the word's sequential position. The article maintains that some grammatical acquisition, but not "vast amounts," derives from the analysis of memorized chunks. (17 references) (Author/CK)
