(Mis)construing Null Prepositions in L2 Intergrammars: A Commentary and Proposal.
Klein, Elaine C.
Second Language Research, v17 n1 p37-70 Jan 2001
Discusses the "null prep phenomenon" reported in studies of the second language (L2) development of extraction constructions. Reviews a proposal that null prep grammars represent a generalized procedure in L2 development, that of early reliance on A-bar binding construals when the target grammar requires wh-movement. Offers an alternative analysis. (Author/VWL)
