The version offered during this quantity attracts jointly a variety of strands of analysis – moment language acquisition conception, bilingualism study, dynamic platforms concept – to increase a singular method of this demanding topic. Its major concentration lies at the psycholinguistic dynamics of multilingualism, the procedures of swap in time affecting or extra language platforms.

This essential indistinguishability of transitional learner systems and fossilised utility systems is reflected in the common use of the term ‘learner pidgin’ as mentioned above. What is, however, reflected in the term and the corresponding research is the fact that the learner’s approximative system must be seen as an autonomous one obeying its own principles. At this state of discussion we propose that multilinguals also work with approximative systems of their target languages as illustrated in Figure 6, which is another way of saying that 46 A Dynamic Model of Multilingualism Figure 6 Approximative systems model LS = language system of native speaker; LS’ = language system of a multilingual speaker; ISP = ideal native speaker proficiency; RSP = rudimentary speaker proficiency; t = time; l = language level their language competence in one or both languages is likely to be restricted.

We will therefore start this chapter with a look at the competence/performance dichotomy and move on to explain the explicit and implicit beliefs of UG language acquisition theory. The main focus of the chapter will lie on a discussion of the applicability of this research paradigm to SLA and multilingualism. Theory of Competence The concept of language competence was originally introduced into mainstream linguistics by Chomsky (1965), who was one of the first linguists to develop an explicit theory of competence.

This form of transfer necessarily presupposes an asymmetrical relationship between LS1 and LS2. Interference is intended to refer to those phenomena which are not reducible to either of the language systems involved. We therefore assume that interference is a term to be used to describe language processing, rather than language structure. ‘Negative transfer’ is rather confusingly also described as ‘interference’ in the literature on SLA, a concept which should be retained for the description of the result of a dynamic interaction between two or more language systems.
