Lexical-Grammatical Pragmatic Indicators.
Blum-Kulka, Shoshana; Levenston, Edward A.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v9 n2 p155-70 Jun 1987
A study of the interlanguage pragmatics of learners of Hebrew and English (L2s) focuses on pragmatic indicators used in requests and apologies (situations in Appendix). Deviations from native-speaker norms in the speech of non-native speakers are discussed. Results suggest L2s' misuse of pragmatic indicators can have serious interactional consequences. (Author/LMO)
