Description:
Exploring the acquisition of representative language forms or language functions by second language speakers, this course draws on contrastive linguistics for patterns of systematic variation among languages or continua along which languages vary; it also draws on empirical second language research for regularities in learners' performance that reveal how their individual, internal representations of the target language systematically change with meaningful exposure to that language.
