DOES PARAMETER DIFFERENCES OF TWO LANGUAGES PREVENT LEARNERSTO ACCESS IN A PARTICULAR LINGUISTIC SYSTEM?

Abstract
While learning a second/foreign language, some errors seem universal, reflecting learners attempts to
make the tasks of learning and using the second language/target language simpler. But learners first language is not
well encouraged and entertained to be used while learning a second or foreign language since it is believed that the
parameter differences between the two languages might prevent the learners to a ccess in a particular linguistic
system or it might cause them making mistakes and errors . It is also believed that mistakes/errors made by the
learners while learning the target language are a direct influence of their first language. Therefore this stud y aims to
examine the bilingual learners accessibility in their first and second language with respect to wh-word order to get
insight if parameter differences of two languages can result the same as discussed and consequently it would be
better to avoid the first language in a language classroom. The subjects of the study were 30 young, 6th grade
learners Bangladesh whose medium of instruction was English. To provide evidence, one translation knowledge task
and one production knowledge task were used to capture the particular linguistic behavior of the lear ners . Based on
the findings, the result of the study indicates that even though there are parameter differences the learners can access
almost equally in the both linguistic systems . It also indicates that their knowledge of and production of wh -word
order are comparable within and across first and second language . The study has some important pedagogical
implications which suggest mistakes made by the learners can be used as feedback tools by the t eachers in the
classroom to check conceptual unders tanding and the subtle use of learners first language will be very useful for
t he learners .

Key words: Universal errors, Bilingual access, Linguistic behavior, Parameter differences
