English Do/Make Compared with German Tun/Machen and Dutch Doen/Maken--A Synchronic-Diachronic Approach.
Nehls, Dietrich
IRAL, v29 n4 p303-16 Nov 1991
Discusses the difficulties in learning the English verbs "do" and "make" by second-language learners, and compares the use of these verbs with the German "tun" and "machen" and the Dutch "doen" and "maken." It is suggested that to reach valid conclusions in contrastive linguistics, it is necessary to consider the diachronic dimension. (21 references) (JL)
