With a focus on grammatical processing, the chapter surveys recent studies that investigate how second language (L2) learners learn to predict and whether they use prediction for learning the L2 grammar. This chapter first reviews theoretical approaches to the roles of prediction and prediction… read more | Chapter

Hopp, Holger, Teresa Kieseier, Markus Vogelbacher and Dieter Thoma 2018 L1 effects in the early L3 acquisition of vocabulary and grammarForeign Language Education in Multilingual Classrooms, Bonnet, Andreas and Peter Siemund (eds.), pp. 305–330

This study investigates under which conditions the L1 syntax is activated in L2 on-line sentence comprehension. We study whether cross-linguistic syntactic activation of the L1 word order is affected by lexical activation of the first language (L1) by virtue of cognate words. In two eye-tracking… read more | Article
In order to elucidate the structure of heritage grammars, this paper presents an analysis of word order variation in Moundridge Schweitzer German (MSG), a moribund heritage variety of German spoken in South Central Kansas. Based on elicited production data and an acceptability judgment task, we… read more | Article

We consider case and gender marking as well as gender concord and test for effects of internal (age, age of onset) and external (length of… read more | Article
