SR shows a typical acquisition pattern of first avoiding marked structures, then repairing them, then producing them faithfully. I propose a method for diagnosing and quantifying avoidance, and then analyze the avoidance using the null parse approach. I offer a computationally implemented Tessier 2007, 2008, 2009, Becker and Tessier 2012), modeling the avoidance of marked structure as selection of the null parse. The model predicts a realistic acquisition path using a persistent M > F > MParse bias and the relativization of MParse to markedness constraints.

) model, and used it for studies aiming at bridging the paradigmgap between learner and second language varieties. Our objective is to chart new elf data and thereby broaden the scope of written elf corpora using what we call a bottom-up approach. We illustrate that, apart from the academic domain
of English. The lack of analyses of esl varieties with respect to sla was identified as a ‘paradigmgap’ early on by Sridhar and Sridhar (1982) . The very basic similarity between esl and efl varieties lies in their origin as learner varieties. Both varieties may show features that develop
(Thums 295–296). The Living Language In Romantic poetry and the vitalist study of nature, the paradigmgap is filled by means of subjunctive thinking which is open to novelty and provisionality and which regards theory as orienting action. 9 Within the new mythology, this subjunctive thinking is
