These objective factors include the perceptual saliency and frequency of occurrence of L2 features in the input (Goldschneider & DeKeyser 2001), their communicative load and, as indicated by the dotted line in Figure 1, also their absolute or inherent complexity, or complexity for short. The absolute approach defines language complexity in objective, ­quantitative terms as the number of discrete components that a language ­feature or a ­language system consists of, and as the number of connections between the ­different ­components.
