Sources of Variation in Interlanguage.
Adamson, H. D.; Elliott, Otis Phillip, Jr.
IRAL, v35 n2 p87-98 1997
Discusses variation in interlanguage and suggests two hypotheses to explain such variation as multiple internal representations of a form and processing errors. Suggests that second language learners can initially represent new forms as prototype schemas, and that such non-discrete representations are a third source of variation in interlanguage.
