Types of Morphemes and Their Implications for Second Language Morpheme Acquisition.
International Journal of Bilingualism, v4 n1 p29-43 Mar 2000
Proposes that interlanguage constructions are driven by different types of morphemes, and argues that the reason why morphemes are not acquired at the same rate is that they are projected differently from the mental lexicon. Claims that early IL forms are the consequences of the learner's incomplete acquisition of the abstract lexical entries of the target language. (Author/VWL)
