Abstract:

The main focus of this collection is to explore the question of
'representational deficits' in second language acquisition, currently a
much-debated topic. The volume is intended as a tribute to Roger Hawkins, a
leading scholar in generative second language acquisition, whose research
has been devoted to explaining lack of native-like success in terms of
representational deficits. The papers in this volume feature a range of
studies, all undertaken within a generative linguistic framework, which
investigate various properties of L2 grammar bearing on the question of
whether or not there are representational deficits in the
post-critical-period L2 learners' grammar. The significance of such
deficits, if their existence can be confirmed, is that they provide support
for the claim, at least for the type of L2 learner under investigation,
that there are insurmountable obstacles to ultimate attainment.
