An Error Analysis of a Spanish-English-Speaking Mother and Her Two Bilingual Children as Determined by the Linguistic Structures Repetition Test: A Pilot Study.
Tilley, Sally D.
It is theorized that in English, phonology and semantics are involved in speech production, but the two are linked through syntax. This pilot study compared through error analysis the imitation of English sentences as produced by a Spanish-English speaking mother and her two bilingual daughters, ages six and seven, to determine the syntactic interference of Spanish on the imitation of spoken English. The study also piloted the Linguistic Structures Repetition Test which was initially developed for English speakers to see whether it could be used with bilinguals to indicate language dominance. Results of the study indicated that the test has potential for use in establishing language dominance of bilinguals. It can also be used in error analyses to determine errors due to language interference as well as errors due to language development. (Author)
