The Role of Ambiguity in Second Language Change: The Case of Mozambican African Portuguese.
Goncalves, Perpetua
Second Language Research, v18 n4 p325-47 Oct 2002
Suggests that language change is driven by acquisition and argues that the triggers for establishing the properties of language-specific grammars differ according to whether first language or second language acquisition is involved. Presents two case studies of Mozambican African Portuguese, a nonnative variety of Portuguese acquired during childhood by first language speakers of Bantu languages. (Author/VWL)
