In contrast, cortisol inhibited both uterine eosinophilia and(More)
This article investigates the learnability filter (LF) hypothesis, according to which the set of logically possible grammars predicted by linguistic theory is reduced to a proper subset of learnable grammars by external principles of language learning. Anti-faithfulness constraints (Alderete, 2001a) provide a linguistic theory that predicts the existence of(More)
