Sequences of acquisition
Read and Reflect
Read the summaries of research on developmental sequences by Vivian Cook, a leading UK second language researcher.
Cook identifies three important questions to ask about developmental sequences:
which forms do second language learners use in which order?
how does this acquisitional order compare with first language learners?
how can the sequence be explained?
Read Cook's research synopses and try his exercises to learn about:
the morpheme studies (Burt & Dulay)
the processability model (or multidimensional model; Pienemann et al.)
