Missing Inflection in L2 French: Accidental Infinitives and Other Verbal Deficits.
Herschensohn, Julia
Second Language Research, v17 n3 p273-305 Jul 2001
Reexamines the morphology/functional category debate in light of empirical data drawn from a longitudinal study of two intermediate learners of French as a second language (L2). Argues that inflectional deficits--which appear as both nonfinite verbs and as other morphological errors in the interlanguage data--support neither a codependence of syntax on morphology nor gradual structure-building of L2 functional categories.
