Different Different 5. Different Same Different 6. Different Same Same Case 1, in which the two learners have the same native language and choose both the same domain and the same hypothesis, is, presumably, a typical situation for speakers of language A learning language B. Their previous knowledge is close to identical (I am excluding the possibility of different dialects here) and their experiences with the target language are similar enough for them to arrive at the same hypothesis. But it is not the only possibility.

And it is not, I believe, an accident that the structural characteristics of the learner's language are so pidgin-like in the earlier stages. Not only can learners be said to regress to an earlier stage of their own linguistic development but to some more basic, possibly universal, grammar. This could be expressed as the mother tongue stripped of all its specific features. If this is the case and the study of the earliest stages of interlanguage strongly suggests that it is, then one will want immediately to know where the learners have become acquainted with this basic simple grammar.
