One interesting way to study language development is by closely examining spontaneous language data at various stages of language proficiency. This article will focus on language production data that provide a window on language development and that enable us to tap the complicated process of language production. The language data in question are socalled self-repairs, which have been collected as part of a 4-year research project on LI (first language, in this case Dutch) and L2 (second language, in this case English) repair behavior of Dutch learners of English at three different levels of L2 proficiency (Van Hest, 1996).
