To "Er" or not to "Er"
Barnes, Dayle
Journal of Chinese Linguistics, 5, 2, 211-236, Jun 77
This paper argues for a reconsideration of the emphasis traditionally placed on "er"-ization, or word-final retroflexion, in contemporary Mandarin language instruction outside China. Pedagogical considerations regarding choice of language variety and data on use of "er"-ization in China are considered, and the conclusion is against use of "er"-ization. (CHK)
