Abstract:Taken together, the findings from both experiments suggest that sensitive periods for L2 acquisition are involved both in lexico-semantics and in syntax, and that the exact nature of the effects of the sensitive periods may be different, depending upon the linguistic component and the task under examination. These findings are discussed with regard to their implications for multiple sensitive periods for second-language acquisition.
