Re-Assembling Formal Features in Second Language Acquisition: Beyond Minimalism
Carroll, Susanne E.
Second Language Research, v25 n2 p245-253 2009
In this commentary, Lardiere's discussion of features is compared with the use of features in constraint-based theories, and it is argued that constraint-based theories might offer a more elegant account of second language acquisition (SLA). Further evidence is reported to question the accuracy of Chierchia's (1998) Nominal Mapping Parameter. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
