Abstract:
In this thesis, it will be argued that the interlanguage of adult L2 learners contains a degree of optionality which is best explained as an inability to establish morphophonological correspondences in the L2. The argument is constructed within a particular view of Universal Grammar, with special emphasis on the derivational processes and the legibility of syntactic representations to speech and thought systems.
