Example text

If a structure is produced with little lexical and grammatical contextual variation, it is labeled emerging. In the area of syntax, the results of Mansouri (2000) show that the IL of Arabic L2 proceeds in the following order: SVO > Equational Sentences > Negation > VS (O) > adverb fronting > Subordination > anaphora > Adverb separation1 (p. 161, Table 27). Given this overall order, Mansouri (2000) concludes that “the overall findings of the development of syntax in beginners and intermediate learners are generally consistent with the set of predictions generated on the basis of the processability approach and other cross-linguistic research carried out within the theory” (p.

Lemma activation instigates a number of syntactic procedures necessary to realize a 22 Second-language acquisition theories concept into a structure. ” The activated lemma already contains category information. For example, a lemma with a category information N will instigate building an NP, a lemma containing the category information V will instigate building a VP, and so on. As shown in the example below, once the concept “child” is delivered to the grammatical encoder, the category procedure is activated, resulting in building an NP.

The level of interface between the production model and the grammar defines processability (phrasal, inter-phrasal, subordinate). In what follows, I will present a brief review of the key assumptions and formalism used in LFG. General principles of LFG Bresnan (2001) proposes the following three general principles of LFG: 1. The principle of variability: This principle accounts for the variation in word order and phrase grouping between different languages. In LFG, c-structure accounts for the external expression that allows us to describe structures using phrase rules based on precedence and dominance between categories.
