Abstract: The dissertation investigates the acquisition of L3 Korean by early bilinguals with and without formal L2 experience, especially morphosyntactic feature such as case-marking with three studies. Firstly, the potential role of transfer in L3 acquisition by investigating typological proximity and influence of L3 proficiency in transfer were examined using a timed grammaticality judgement task. In addition, L2 status effect in the acquisition of variation patterns of argument realisation involving such case-marking was investigated using a variationist approach. A formal L2 learning experience, regardless typological proximity, supports the acquisition of structural information of L3 as well as to achieve consistent performance over the various sentence structures regarding its familiarity due to enhances metalinguistic awareness. In addition, it allows the learners with L2 experience acquire variation patterns of argument realisation from classroom inputs with greater sensitivity to the patterns. Overall, the dissertation provides evidences of linguistic and non-linguistic transfer from L2 experiences.
