The Poetry of ESL Error.
Allen, Melissa
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v21 n2 p120-24 May 1994
Argues that English-as-a-Second-Language writing can have its own distinctive power and eloquence in spite of, and sometimes because of, its errors. Examines several different kinds of "poetic" nonnativisms, suggesting why they were created and why they may strike native speakers as especially expressive. (SR)
