This study investigates cross-linguistic influences in the acquisition of scope interaction between quantifiers and negation by K-E bilingual children. The results show that K-E bilingual children need not follow the same development patterns as those (e.g. isomorphic readings) reported for monolingual children in previous studies (Musolino 1998; Kim et al. 2003). I argue that their different developmental patterns are attributable to cross-linguistic influences such as transfer of positional flexibility of Korean negation to English. Furthermore, the transfer of Korean negation causes the acquisition of English negation blocking effect to delay. However, English negation, which is expressed higher than the object in overt syntax, facilitates acquisition of Korean V-raising,which is argued to derive an inverse scope reading in Korean.
