The evolution of language has been a hotly debated subject with contradicting hypotheses and unreliable claims.

The author introduces the L2 Linguistic Perception (L2LP) model, a new formal and comprehensive proposal which integrates, synthesizes, and improves on previous studies, and therefore constitutes the most explanatorily adequate account of the whole process of L2 sound acquisition.
