Inter- and Intra-Population Consistency: A Comment on Kanno (1998).
Kellerman, Eric; Yoshioka, Kaoru
Second Language Research, v15 n1 p101-109 1999
Responds to Kanno's article (see FL 528 536), which described studies of adult American learners of Japanese and their knowledge of two universal grammar (UG) principles and noted various lateral inconsistencies. This commentary suggests that another form of lateral inconsistency, arising from failure to replicate Kanno's findings in another adult population, constitutes a further muddying of the waters in the UG accessibility debate.
