This article presents a novel hypothesis for the formal analysis of cross-linguistic influence, the Vulnerability Hypothesis (VH), with the support of data from subject personal pronoun use in Spanish and Catalan in Minorca, and contrast it to the Interface Hypothesis (IH). It conduces to current discussions in the fields of language contact, second language acquisition, and bilingualism.
