Abstract

CONTRERAS AEDO, Carlos  and  FERREIRA CABRERA, Anita. L2 SPANISH ACQUISITION ORDER: SUBJUNTIVE MOOD. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2013, n.28, pp.249-283. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112013000200014.

This article presents qualitative results of an exploratory study of the order of acquisition of Spanish as a foreign language in native speakers of English, French and German. Indications given by Collentine (2010) and Montrul (2008) related to the acquisition of L2 Spanish preterit/imperfect and present subjunctive are included. The results show an order of acquisition of the preterit/imperfect prior to the acquisition of the present subjunctive; in addition, they show transfer from L1 and an error distribution pattern in subordinate clauses which is different in the three native languages studied.

Keywords : acquisition sequence; L1; L2 Spanish; SLA; transfer; subjunctive.
