In the introduction to this volume, the editors clarify the relevance of this chapter for those who work with adults starting their acquisition of a new language without the support of literacy. In addition to the obvious role of morphosyntax in building learners’ oral proficiency, morphosyntax is closely tied to reading comprehension. The learner can decode individual words without competence in the morphosyntax of a language, but such competence is required to understand sentences.
