Pragmaticization and the L2 Acquisition of Chinese Ba Constructions.
Jin, Hong Gang
Journal of the Chinese Language Teachers Association, v28 n3 p33-52 Oct 1992
The process of pragmaticization is explored in a study of 46 adult English speakers learning Chinese as their second language. Results suggest that "ba" constructions that manifest certain grammatical features and are structurally dependent will be acquired earlier than those pragmatically controlled and contextually dependent.
