Referring to Johnson´s model of language learning, the author highlights some crucial problems associated with the development of declarative and procedural grammar knowledge. A theoretical analysis follows, focussing on their possible causes from linguistic, educational, and psychological perspectives. The need for further research is emphasized by presenting numerous questions and stimuli for theoretical analyses and empirical research. The subsequent findings should underpin methodological recommendations.
