On the Basis of the Basic Variety.
Schwartz, Bonnie D.
Second Language Research, v13 n4 p386-402 Oct 1997
Considers the interplay between source and target language in relation to two points made by Klein and Perdue: (1) the argument that the analysis of the target language should not be used as the model for analyzing interlanguage data; and (2) the theoretical claim that under the technical assumptions of minimalism, the Basic Variety is a "perfect" I-language.
