Contrastive Analysis and Language Tendencies.
Ree, Joe J.
The purpose of this paper is to show that: (1) language universals have much to offer to students of contrastive linguistics, and (2) in order to make contrastive analysis more meaningful, one ought to go beyond cataloguing mere contrastive structure statements and capture underlying structural tendencies. Some characteristics of word order in Japanese are presented in support of the second position in particular. (Author/TL)
