Falk, Ylva and Camilla Bardel 2021 Transfer patterns in L 3 learning discussedEpistemological issue: Sources of knowledge in L3 acquisition, Flores, Cristina and Neal Snape (eds.), pp. 50–53 | Commentary
The keynote from Schwartz and Sprouse (2020) starts with an overview of various models of L3 acquisition, with focus on syntax. The authors come to the conclusion that the Typological Proximity Model (TPM) is the model which can explain L3 acquisition development. In this commentary we sort out… read more
This chapter provides a nuanced view of the L2 status factor model, emphasizing explicit metalinguistic knowledge as the key factor governing transfer, together with individual differences in working memory and the operations associated with it. We argue that individual differences regarding the… read more
Sanchez, Laura and Camilla Bardel 2017 Chapter 10. Transfer from an L2 in third language learning: A study on L2 proficiencyL3 Syntactic Transfer: Models, new developments and implications, Angelovska, Tanja and Angela Hahn (eds.), pp. 223–250 | Chapter
This chapter addresses the role of proficiency in a prior non-native language (L2 proficiency) on transfer in third language learning. It discusses some methodological considerations and gaps in previous research, while also bringing up conceptual difficulties in defining, operationalizing and… read more
In this study, we analyze the kind of actions L1 and L2 speakers of Italian perform by prefacing their responsive turns with the discourse marker be’. As a baseline, the article begins with an analysis of how native speakers of Italian use be’. We then carry out quantitative and qualitative… read more

This chapter deals with the assumed qualitative difference between the learning of a chronologically true L2 and the subsequent learning of an L3, and the related issue of transfer from L2 into L3. In fact, some recent studies show that L2 can take on a stronger role than L1 as a transfer source in… read more
Bardel, Camilla and Christina Lindqvist 2011 Developing a lexical profiler for spoken French L2 and Italian L2: The role of frequency, thematic vocabulary and cognatesEUROSLA Yearbook: Volume 11 (2011), Roberts, Leah, Gabriele Pallotti and Camilla Bettoni (eds.), pp. 75–93 | Article
This study is a follow-up to Lindqvist et al. (to press), where we investigated lexical frequency profiles of learners of French and Italian at different proficiency levels. By analyzing the proportion of low-frequency words used by the learners, we could distinguish proficiency levels that differ… read more
