Sample text

Regular plural nouns are classified to require S-procedure with saliency. However, building regular plurals in Arabic does not require exchange of information between two phrases because it is done within the N category. 28 Arabic L2 PT studies 3. 4. The same can be said for the dual. Therefore, in PT terms, regular plural nouns in Arabic would require category procedure. Mansouri classifies irregular plurals to require an S-procedure. It may be true that acquiring irregular plural nouns in Arabic is more difficult than regular ones, but this is not due to processability procdure.

This kind of inter-learner variability does not threaten the validity of PT, because “[PT] is essentially developmental in nature” (p. 162); therefore, we expect some learners to develop before others. Mansouri concludes the study by pointing to the challenges that SLA researchers face in their quest for a comprehensive understanding of SLA. According to Mansouri, the first challenge is the need to account for acquisition of typologically different languages, and not generalize based on European languages only.

He concluded by generalizing that “the speech processing hierarchy as defined in Pienemann is inadequate as a predictor of the order in which Arabic morphological features will be acquired by L2ers” (p. 183). However, the fact that learners failed to process a structure (N-A agreement) within a stage does not amount to stage skipping, which then would have undermined the validity of PT. This is so, because PT does not claim that IL development is linear. PT does not hypothesize that all structures within a stage have to be acquired before any structure in the flowing stage can be started to be processable.
