Linguistic LingField(s):  Language Acquisition

Query:   Does anybody know about studies relating the grammatical competence of L2
learners to the size of their L2 lexicon?

That is, I'm looking for the kind of study that would claim ''a learner who
knows X target language words knows this much target language grammar,
whereas someone who knows 2X words knows that much grammar''.

As someone outside the SLA field, it seems to me like somebody must have
made claims of this sort, but SLA people I have talked to have been unable
to supply me with references.
