Abstract:

This volume presents a state-of-the-art descriptive and explanatory
analysis of the second language development of Romance tense-aspect
systems. It contains new experimental data from adult French, Catalan,
Portuguese learners, and Italian children learners. Standing research
questions are addressed and pedagogical implications for foreign language
classrooms are proposed arguing that there are possible commonalities in
the instructional sequences of tense-aspect development in Romance
languages. The first chapter presents an overview of current theoretical
approaches and a summary of empirical findings. The following four chapters
introduce new empirical data from a variety of theoretical perspectives
(e.g., the Aspect Hypothesis, the UG/Minimalist framework). Chapter 5
proposes practical pedagogical approaches for the foreign language
classroom based on empirical findings. The last chapter summarizes and
discusses these findings in order to start elaborating a more comprehensive
model of the development of tense-aspect marking in the Romance languages.
