Teaching French Cleft Constructions to English-Speakers: What Syntactic Theory Has to Say.
Hagen, L. Kirk; DeWitt, Jean
Canadian Modern Language Review, v49 n3 p550-66 Apr 1993
A study investigated the effectiveness of teaching French cleft constructions (e.g., "qui est-ce qui...) by three methods: in a contextual presentation; traditionally; and in a presentation influenced by syntactic theory and explaining the internal structure of the phrases. Results suggest formal grammar instruction should focus on familiar general grammatical properties. (27 references) (Author/MSE)
