Abstract:

This volume looks at the development of linguistic competence and
convergence in second language acquisition by analysing the acquisition of
complex syntax by non-native learners of Spanish. It looks at the knowledge
that is transferred from the native language and the changes that occur as
learners become more proficient. It focuses on a particular class of grammatical
constructions that are central to understanding the transition from simple to
complex syntax in language development: Control, Raising and Exceptional
Case Marking structures. Theoretical syntax has dealt extensively with the
properties of these constructions. As well as a comprehensive review of
seminal and current theories, this volume presents an empirical study informed
by these theories that ultimately seeks to bridge the gap between linguistic
theory and its applications.
