Implicit and explicit knowledge of English articles in speakers of article-less languages
This talk will discuss what L2-English learners from article-less L1s (Korean and Chinese) know about English articles, and whether performance with English articles varies across tasks that target more explicit knowledge (such as acceptability judgments) vs. tasks that target more implicit knowledge (such as self-paced reading). This talk also addresses the role of transfer from related categories (demonstratives and numerals) in the learners’ L1, and asks whether transfer is manifested across task types.
Everyone is invited! We hope to see all MLL students and staff at the talk.Posted By : Erin Forward
