The Emergence of Tense and Agreement in Child L2 French.
Paradis, Joanne; Le Corre, Mathieu; Genesee, Fred
Second Language Research, v14 n3 p227-56 1998
Examines the acquisition of tense and agreement by L2 learners of French. Interviews were conducted with English-speaking children acquiring French as a second language and with grade-matched native French-speaker controls. Results revealed that items encoding agreement emerged before items encoding tense, suggesting that the abstract grammatical structures associated with these morphosyntax items emerge in sequence.
