Orality/Literacy and Group Differences in Second-Language Acquisition.
Hansen-Strain, Lynne
Language Learning, v39 n4 p469-96 Dec 1989
Examines group differences in second-language development from perspectives provided by literature on orality and literacy. Results show that university English-as-a-Second-Language students from traditional oral cultures tended to focus on interpersonal involvement in their speaking and writing, and use difficult structures more than students from more literate cultural traditions.
