Pica, Teresa; And Others
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v11 n1 p63-90 Mar 1989
A study investigated how second language learners responded when native speakers signaled difficulty in understanding them. Types and frequency of learner responses were examined in relation to communication tasks and to native speakers' different signal types. Results supported the construct of comprehensible output, the influence of linguistic demands, and sex differences. (Author/MSE)
