This inquiry assesses the impact of express (un)planned two-task typed instruction on advanced French second language learners' contextually fit oral application of two stylistic variables (/l/ and ne deletion vs. Preservation). Their skill to align to L1 stylistic norms appears moderated by both task type and stylistic variant complexity and even by personal speech-style choices.
