Formulaic: sequences of elements that are stored and accessed.
Rule-based: unconcious knowledge
Explicit (declarative) knowledge
Metalingual: lexical knowledge of technical and non-technical linguistic terminology
Analysed: concious awareness of minor and major schemas
Design and scope
Two different senses of SLA
