Al-Qadi, Nassir Saleh
Language Sciences, v14 n1-2 p89-107 Jan-Apr 1992
Tests the relative difficulty for Arab speakers in their acquisition of aspects of English derivational morphology, based on previous work that identified major similarities and differences between Standard Arabic and Standard English through contrastive analysis. Results confirm the usefulness of predictions of contrastive analysis in the acquisition of English derivational morphology. (26 references) (JL)
