Influences of Typological Parameters on L2 Learners' Judgments of Null Pronouns in English.
Register, Norma
Language Learning, v40 n3 p369-85 Sep 1990
Analysis of the responses of Spanish, Chinese, and German learners of English-as-a-Second-Language to English sentences with empty pronominal categories found that, although empty pronouns were pragmatically more natural in finite clauses of Spanish and Chinese than in English or German, only the Spanish subjects had significantly higher mean errors than those of the German group.
