Abstract:
Two of the major concerns of generative research into second language acquisition continue to be the role that the LI plays in interlanguage grammars and the availability of innate linguistic knowledge (Universal Grammar) to older L2 learners. These concerns have given rise to a number of competing theories. Each attempts to specify the role of the LI and the role of Universal Grammar, so that observed L2 behaviour can be explained. The present study contributes to tliis debate by investigating the acquisition of yes-no and wh-interrogatives in the L2 English of LI speakers of Arabic.
