Causative Errors with Unaccusative Verbs in L2 Spanish.
Montrul, Silvina
Second Language Research, v15 n2 p191-219 Apr 1999
Investigates whether intermediate Turkish-speaking and English-speaking learners of Spanish know which unaccusative verbs alternate in transitivity and which ones do not, and whether they find causative errors natural with intransitive verbs. Results confirm similar findings to those reported in English interlanguage and first-language acquisition and suggest that first- and second-language acquisition are guided by the same linguistic properties.
