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.
