Educational Research and Reviews, v12 n2 p54-61 Jan 2017
Communication is one of the most important aspects of social life. Social interactions have increased the necessity for communication and learning of language. Social needs which constitute the main goal of teaching activities fill the gap of learning language. Linguistic surveys have revealed an important finding on educational activities and outputs. One of them is distributional linguistic theory. The purpose of this work is to describe the connection between Polish speakers who learned Turkish as a foreign language having preference for syntax and Turkish native speakers having preference for syntax using distributional linguistic theory. In this study, survey model, a kind of quantitative research, was used. Quantitative research data were collected by document review. The survey was carried out with Polish and Turkish university students in 2013/2014 academic year in spring semester. The working group consists of 20 students who were chosen with stratified random sampling. The findings explain the meaning statistically, and consequences were tabulated. There are differences in the syntax and sentence length of the working group in written language.
