Baten, Kristof and Aaricia Ponnet 2023 Chapter 4. Extending PT to split ergative marking and differential object marking: Some hypotheses for L2 HindiProcessability and Language Acquisition in the Asia-Pacific Region, Kawaguchi, Satomi, Bruno Di Biase and Yumiko Yamaguchi (eds.), pp. 91–114
This chapter proposes a developmental sequence for the L2 acquisition of two linguistic phenomena in Hindi, namely split ergativity and differential object marking. The proposal builds on the universal key mechanisms of Processability Theory, i.e., the transfer of grammatical information between… read more | Chapter
In research about second language (L2) development during study abroad (SA), writing is underrepresented. This is partly due to the difficulty of designing adequate tasks and measures to gauge writing development during a short immersion period. Our study explores the applicability of a narrative… read more | Article
Previous research on the benefits of study abroad (SA) has mainly focused on oral communication skills and L2 English, while written communication and other foreign languages have received far less attention. This study addresses this gap by investigating writing development in L2 German. It also… read more | Article
This article examines the connections among self-reported social network development, L2 use, and self-perceived speaking proficiency development in a group of Belgian ERASMUS students (n = 59) who studied abroad in different European countries (Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain,… read more | Article

Introduction
Baten, Kristof 2019 Chapter 5. The elicitation of oral language production data: An exploration of the Elicited Imitation TaskTeachability and Learnability across Languages, Arntzen, Ragnar, Gisela Håkansson, Arnstein Hjelde and Jörg-U. Keßler (eds.), pp. 97–118
To determine developmental stages, research based on the framework of Processability Theory (PT) commonly examines data from naturally occurring speech. This chapter will investigate whether experimentally elicited data can also be used as a valid basis for determining developmental stages. It… read more | Chapter
This chapter compares two different approaches to the construct ‘readiness’: namely, processing constraints as defined by Processability Theory and the Teachability Hypothesis (Pienemann, 1998) and partial mastery as defined in the research on Focus on Form (Williams & Evans, 1998). The former… read more | Chapter
Baten, Kristof and Jörg-U. Keßler 2019 Chapter 1. Research timeline. The role of instruction: Teachability and processabilityTeachability and Learnability across Languages, Arntzen, Ragnar, Gisela Håkansson, Arnstein Hjelde and Jörg-U. Keßler (eds.), pp. 9–26
This chapter presents an overview of studies that have dealt with the role of instruction, and more particularly, its possible effect on altering the route of second language acquisition (SLA). In SLA, some have argued that the effects of instruction are limited, in that instruction will promote… read more | Chapter
Baten, Kristof 2016 A study on explicit instruction and its relation to knowing/using linguistic forms and individual learner readinessEUROSLA Yearbook: Volume 16 (2016), Liszka, Sarah Ann, Pascale Leclercq, Marion Tellier and Georges Daniel Véronique (eds.), pp. 116–143
This paper reports the results of a study on the effects of explicit instruction, which examined the L2 development of the German case system. The study investigated to what extent the effects of instruction, if any, depend on (i) the type of linguistic performance (knowledge vs. use) and (ii) the… read more | Article
Ponnet, Aaricia, Kristof Baten and Saartje Verbeke 2016 The acquisition of differential object marking in Hindi as a foreign languageDutch Journal of Applied Linguistics 5:2, pp. 101–125
This article explores a grammatical structure — differential object marking (DOM) — that is particularly difficult for L2 learners to acquire. DOM is a phenomenon in which some direct objects are morphologically marked and others are not. In Hindi, animate direct objects are always marked with the… read more | Article
Baten, Kristof and Saartje Verbeke 2015 Chapter 4. The Acquisition of the Ergative Case in Hindi as a Foreign LanguageTheoretical and Methodological Developments in Processability Theory, Baten, Kristof, Aafke Buyl, Katja Lochtman and Mieke Van Herreweghe (eds.), pp. 71–104
Using the framework of Processability Theory (PT), this chapter examines the development of the Hindi case system in the interlanguage of Dutch-speaking foreign language learners. A number of studies have already adopted the PT framework to describe, predict and explain the development of case… read more | Article
