How L2 learners of French and English express modality using verbal means: Leclercq & Edmonds 2017

How L2 learners of French and English express modality using verbal means: Leclercq & Edmonds 2017 | TELT | Scoop.it

Controlled study of use of modality in FR and EN at different levels of proficiency concludes:


"These crosslinguistic differences suggest that early L2 acquisition of verbal modal forms may progress more quickly for English than for French. This pattern could be explained with recourse to language-specific information concerning the complexity of the French system: Not only are verbs used in the French modal system subject to the same conjugation requirements as lexical verbs, but many such verbs are irregular. If this interpretation is correct, we may expect that modal adverbials play a greater role in French interlanguage than in English."

✤ favoriser des contacts et échanges entre chercheurs en AL2 à travers des séminaires, journées d’études, ou colloques ;
✤ promouvoir des projets de recherche communs ;
✤ participer à la formation des doctorants et jeunes chercheurs ;
✤ développer l’interface acquisition/didactique ;
✤ créer une base de données réunissant des corpus de données acquisitionnelles, orales et écrites, issus des projets passés et en cours

My top 10 impromptu reading list on corpus-based research - Pascual Pérez-Paredes | TELT | Scoop.it

One of my RSLE students asked me if I could provide her with a reading list on corpus based research. Her interests are within teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language. The list is for obvious reasons far from comprehensive. I’ve decided to choose those resources I’ve used in the past and which I have found
