Message 1: English Acquisition Order

Subject: English Acquisition Order


I was wondering if anybody out there could suggest to me some good
journal articles or books that deal with English Acquisition order.
Specifically, anything you've read (and thought was worthwile) about
what the English Acquisition order for ESL students (specifically
Asian students) actually is, as well as research about whether these
acquisition orders are actually valid and/or useful.

Any thoughts or articles about the applications of these ideas to
teaching or textbook development would also be much appreciated.

Thank you very much!

Subject: -ed Verbs

A group of students from the cuny graduate center is working on a
pilot study investigating the past tense morpheme -ed and its
allomorphs, we would like to know if someone could point us in the
direction of a list of verbs listed by frequency. We were told this
list exists we just don't know where. It would be much appreciated.
