This inquiry conduces to a completer grasp of how the L2 production of L2 learners shifts over time in terms of syntactic complexity by assaying 11 English L2 writing samples produced by a group of 10 learners. It displays that while evolution over time is quite regular at the group level, individual evolution greatly varies.
