    Abstract

    An correlational analysis between accuracy levels of gender agreement—based on an analysis of 519 gender errors out of 9378 modifiers in the advanced French interlanguage of 27 Flemish L1 speakers- and morphosyntactic and lexical variables, revealed a clear negative relationship between the number of gender errors and fluency variables. No relation was found between gender errors and other types of agreement errors. This suggests that more advanced learners, whose interlanguage speech production process is more automatised or proceduralised, do commit fewer gender errors but that good mastery of gender agreement does not imply an equally good mastery of other types of agreement.
