Moreover, stative progressives mostly occur in contexts that are grammatical in native usage, especially in the interlanguage of learners with a progressive in their L1. Barcroft, Theoretical and Methodological Issues in Research on Semantic and Structural Elaboration in Lexical Acquisition. It discusses the cotextual and contextual factors that still provoke -non-native glitches- at the final stage of the Aspect Hypothesis. Lardiere 2003 , in her reply to Lakshmanan and Selinker 2001 , justifies the use of suppliance in obligatory contexts as a method of analysis in the investigation of the second language L2 acquisition of past tense, and claims that such a method is characteristic of previous studies that have proposed the Aspect Hypothesis. Two of these researches will be elaborately discussed below.
Western European languages have also been the focus of most studies, but there would be lessons to learn from less studied languages. Amsterdam ; Philadelphia : John Benjamins Pub. The results from the acceptability judgment test support the aspect hypothesis in that, regardless of L1, the imperfective marker -te i-ru was strongly associated with activity verbs for lower proficiency learners. Mongolian learners exhibiting superiority over Chinese learners in associating and correctly using the perfective and progressive markings, overuse of progressive markings by Mongolian learners, and overextending progressive markings to States by both L1 groups show evidence of L1 transfer. The results suggest that L1 plays a role in the formation of the acquisition pattern predicted by the aspect hypothesis, but that given the complex interaction with task types and proficiency, L1 transfer cannot be the sole reason for the predicted association in the acquisition of Japanese -te i- ru. This volume originated from a colloquium on the second language L2 acquisition of tense and aspect organized by Salaberry and Shirai at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Applied Linguistics in 1999.

Lund, Cognitive Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition: Motion Events in a Typological Framework. Second Language Acquisition in a Study Abroad Context brings together for the first time a series of studies which explore the relationship between language learning and the study abroad experience. Chapters by internationally renowned authors together with reports by emerging researchers describe second and foreign language learning by children ranging from pre-schoolers to young adolescents, in home and school contexts, with caregivers, peers, and teachers as interlocutors. The volume deals not only with second language development, but with the development of the whole child. Based on the review, it is suggested that in L1 acquisition, both regular and irregular verbs are governed by semantics; that is, early use of past tense forms are restricted to achievement verbs—regular or irregular.
This approach will thus be of interest more generally to readers in first and second language acquisition and child development. In so doing, it tests concurrent explanations, including the influence of the input, the influence of chunking, and the hypothesis of cyclic development. First, although the main currents running between linguistics and second language acquisition have traditionally flowed from theory to application, equally important contributions can be made in the other direction as well. Shirai, A Multiple-Factor Account for the Form-Meaning Connections in the Acquisition of Tense-Aspect Morphology. The importance of distinguishing concepts from meanings is emphasized, as is the difference between meaning transfer and conceptual transfer.
VanPatten, Input and Output in Establishing Form-Meaning Connections. Rocca 2003 , for instance, looks at the effects of L1 Italian on L2 English and of L1 English on L2 Italian. The spread of progressive: the progressive has been widely investigated in English though less wildly investigated than the perfective past. The Aspect Hypothesis assumes that - in early interlanguages - the perfective past spreads from telic to atelic verbs because events occuring in the past are easier to be associated with predicates having an inherent endpoint in their lexico-conceptual representation. This study investigated the relationship between L1 and the developmental sequences for the acquisition of temporal morphology that are predicted by the aspect hypothesis.
An introductory chapter outlines some theoretical and methodological issues that serves as relevant preliminary reading for most of the chapters included in this volume. Supervisor: Not available Sponsor: Not available Qualification Name: Thesis Ph. The researchers, then, tried to see what processes they went through while filling in the blanks with verbs. To test these claims data were collected using a controlled le-insertion task, combined with oral corpus data. Klein, Beyond Syntax: Performance Factors in L2 Behavior. This study investigates the acquisition of two imperfective aspect markers —ko iss— and —a iss— in Korean by Japanese learners to determine how cognitive universals, first language L1 transfer, and input frequency interact. An unusual feature of this book is that relevant studies of acquisition of L2 Italian, some heretofore only i.
Part I: Factors and Processes. However, the finding is in line with a number of studies that have shown that the association of activities with the progressive is not necessarily stronger at the lower levels of proficiency e. Please click button to get the child s acquisition of language book now. In contrast to previous studies, we measure the frequency of stative progressives using the variable context method, which is frequently used in research on dialectal variation. Chapters by internationally renowned authors together with reports by emerging researchers describe second and foreign language learning by children ranging from pre-schoolers to young adolescents, in home and school contexts, with caregivers, peers, and teachers as interlocutors. Thus, the simple past and the passato prossimo are prototypically linked to telic predicates, the progressive is prototypically linked to activities and imperfetto to statives.
Following an overview of child bilingualism, this book looks at the influence of the child's family environment and the factors which predict the language use of the child. The present study attempts to shed light on the way Iranian learners cope with a tense task and how they come up with responses, right or wrong. A typological analysis of these forms indicates that their interaction with lexical aspectual classes creates prototypical links. Utilizing different research methodologies quantitative, qualitative, descriptive , the focus in thi. A robust finding from studies investigating the Aspect Hypothesis is that learners at the early stages of acquisition show a strong preference for using the progressive aspect as associated with activity verbs.
