This article provides a comprehensive synthesis of research on language attrition to date, with a view to establishing a theoretically sound basis for future research in the domain of second language (L2) attrition. We identify the variables that must be tracked in populations who experience language loss, and we develop a general model for the assessment(More)

joint effects of semantic priming and word frequency revealed by RT dis-tributional analyses: the role of lexical integrity. Abstract In this chapter, we expand the conceptual framework of research on second language attrition by invoking an expansive notion of the lexicon , which, in addition to vocabulary, contains items below the word level (i.e.,(More)
In the ongoing philosophical debate over the origins and nature of lexical concepts stemming from the, the potential of first language acquisition studies as a source of evidence has been somewhat overlooked. At the lexical interface with syntax, a restricted set of lexical conceptual elements can be shown to play a pivotal role in the generation of(More)
In recent minimalist approaches to acquisition, there has been an increasing emphasis on the importance of the lexicon in accounts of syntactic variation. This paper extends the view of lexical feature assembly and reassembly articulated by Lardiere into the open-class lexicon and into the realm of motion events. An original L1 experiment reveals that(More)
