DOI: 10.1558/equinox.21683


In this chapter the author will provide further evidence in support of the Secondary Transfer-of-Training Hypothesis, the Cumulative Transfer-of-Training Hypothesis and the Age Hypothesis by measuring the effects of processing instruction on the acquisition of past imperfective aspect, subjunctive mood and causative constructions in French with school-aged children (9–10 years old).
