From SOV to SVO: The Grammar of Interlanguage Word Order.
Second Language Research, v15 n2 p115-32 Apr 1999
Analyzes the grammatical outcome of the conflict speakers of a head-final first language (L1) (Southern Quechua) face when learning a head-initial target (Standard Spanish) language in a naturalistic setting. Proposes that interlanguage sentential word orders reflect a transfer of two independent parameters from the L1: the possibility of having null objects with definite/specific antecedents and a feature triggering object movement for sentential focus.(Author/VWL)
