An Analysis of English Learner Speech
Bertkau, Jana Svoboda
Language Learning, 24, 2, 279-286, Dec 74
An analysis of speech samples collected from adult ESL students revealed recurring variants indicating that learners attempt to simplify the target language in several ways. A universal process of simplification in language learning is postulated to account for the recurrence of the same variants in different learner idiolects. (Author/KM)
