Series Title: Second Language Acquisition Research Series
Description:

Now in Paperback.

Using Chomsky's minimalist program as a framework, this volume explores the
role of formal (or functional) features in current descriptions and
accounts of language acquisition. In engaging, up-to-date articles,
distinguished experts examine the role of features in current versions of
generative grammar and in learnability theory as it relates to native,
non-native, and impaired acquisition.
