English term or phrase:acquisition orders, developmental sequences
Evidence for instruction making no difference emerges from studies conducted to investigate the effects of formal instruction on the route of acquisition and accuracy. By "route" we mean acquisition orders and developmental sequences. The former refers to the order in which particu¬lar morphemes such as plural -s, past tense -ed, and third-person -s are acquired over time. Developmental sequences refer to the stages that learners traverse in acquiring one particular feature of language.
