The Universal Parser and Interlanguage: Domain-Specific Mental Organization in the Comprehension of "Combien" Interrogatives in English-French Interlanguage.
Dekydtspotter, Laurent
Second Language Research, v17 n2 p91-143 Apr 2001
From the perspective of Fodor's (1983) theory of mental organization and Chomsky's (1995) Minimalist theory of grammar, considers constraints on the interpretation of French-type and English-type cardinality interrogatives in the task of sentence comprehension, as a function of a universal parsing algorithm and hypotheses embodied in a French-type versus English-type functional lexicon respectively.
