Abstract

This novel and original paper investigates the competence of bilingual and monolingual Spanish teenagers (ages 10 to 14) regarding the properties of differential object marking (personal a). We consider to which extent the Interface Vulnerability Hypothesis (e.g. Sorace 2004, 2011; Serratrice, Sorace and Paoli 2004) and the Interpretability Hypothesis (Hawkins and Hattori, 2006; Tsimpli and Dimitrakopoulou, 2007) can account for our results. We propose that a feature-based acquisition approach that recognises the prominence of features such as animacy in DOM is necessary to explain the nature of the bilingual and monolingual results.
