Sharwood Smith, Michael. 2010. Metalinguistic processing and acquisition within the MOGUL framework. The Linguistics Enterprise: From knowledge of language to knowledge in linguistics, Everaert, Martin B.H., Tom Lentz, Hannah N.M. De Mulder, Øystein Nilsen and Arjen Zondervan (eds.), pp. 327–344
MOGUL (Modular On-line Growth and Use of Language) is a framework that builds on Jackendoff’s views about the language faculty. Jackendoff’s approach not only has ‘psychological’ reality in that it claims to account for linguistic knowledge in the individual and the logical problem of language… read more | Article
Researchers in the field of language acquisition may adopt various particular theoretical approaches to the description and explanation of linguistic phenomena. They need this theory to describe the nature of what is or is not undergoing change over time. However linguistic theory normally makes no… read more | Article
Sharwood Smith, Michael and John Truscott. 2010. Consciousness and language: A processing perspective. New Horizons in the Neuroscience of Consciousness, Perry, Elaine K., Daniel Collerton, Fiona E.N. LeBeau and Heather Ashton (eds.), pp. 129–138
Our conscious control of language and its acquisition is strictly limited. A processing-oriented perspective to explain this will be outlined called MOGUL according to which some linguistic processes are inherently unconscious while others can be either conscious or not. The former involve… read more | Article
Snape, Neal, Yan-kit Ingrid Leung and Michael Sharwood Smith. 2009. Introduction. Representational Deficits in SLA: Studies in honor of Roger Hawkins, Snape, Neal, Yan-kit Ingrid Leung and Michael Sharwood Smith (eds.), pp. xv–xxv
Sharwood Smith, Michael. 2007. Understanding attrition within a MOGUL framework. Language Attrition: Theoretical perspectives, Köpke, Barbara, Monika S. Schmid, Merel Keijzer and Susan Dostert (eds.), pp. 39–51
Linguistically-based accounts of attrition may give us an analysis of the properties of language observed at particular points in time. Then, by comparing states, we may try to explain the transition between them but, still, discussion concerning the actual mechanisms of change is typically left… read more | Article
Sharwood Smith, Michael and John Truscott. 2006. Full transfer full access: A processing-oriented interpretation. Paths of Development in L1 and L2 acquisition: In honor of Bonnie D. Schwartz, Unsworth, Sharon, Teresa Parodi, Antonella Sorace and Martha Young-Scholten (eds.), pp. 201–216
Escudero, Paola and Michael Sharwood Smith. 2001. Reinventing the native speaker: or ‘What you never wanted to know about the native speaker so never dared to ask.’. EUROSLA Yearbook: Volume 1 (2001), Foster-Cohen, Susan H. and Anna Nizegorodcew (eds.), pp. 275–286
Precise definition of the term, ‘native speaker’, is extremely difficult and therefore usually avoided even though the concept is vital in SLA as in many other domains dealing with language ability. Most researchers rely on the assumption that there is a common understanding of what a… read more | Article
Eubank, Lynn, Larry Selinker and Michael Sharwood Smith. 1995. The current state of interlanguage: Introduction. The Current State of Interlanguage: Studies in honor of William E. Rutherford, Eubank, Lynn, Larry Selinker and Michael Sharwood Smith (eds.), pp. 1 ff.
van Buren, Paul en Michael Sharwood Smith. 1988. De Rol van het Deelverzamelingsprincipe in de Tweede-Taalverwerving.. Taalverwerving in onderzoek, pp. 48–57
The subset principle, recently formulated by Wexler and Manzini as a theorem in L1 acquisition, can be roughly described as a learning function linking a set of input data to a grammar G which generates the "smallest language" compatible with such a set. This property of G guarantees that the… read more | Article
