Beyond Explicit Rule Learning: Automatizing Second Language Morphosyntax.
DeKeyser, Robert M.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v19 n2 p195-221 Jun 1997
Presents a fine-grained analysis of extensive empirical data on the automatization of explicitly learned rules of morphosyntax in a second language. Results indicate that the learning of morphosyntactic rules is highly skill-specific and that these skills develop gradually over time, adhering to the same power function learning curve as the acquisition of other cognitive skills.
