A Brief Comparative Study of English and Vietnamese Syntax. CATESOL Occasional Papers, No. 2.
Ich, V. T.; Sedlow, R.
This paper presents a comparative study of English and Vietnamese syntax. Four basic patterns are said to make up the majority of English sentences: statements (both affirmative and negative), questions (both affirmative and negative), requests, and commands. The composition of each English pattern is discussed with examples, and compared directly to Vietnamese constructions, for which examples are also provided. (CLK)
