Pragmatics of Interaction: Expressing Thanks in a Second Language.
Hinkel, Eli
Applied Language Learning, v5 n1 p73-91 1994
This study investigated whether 199 advanced nonnative speakers of English attending Ohio State University judged the appropriateness of speech acts of giving thanks in ways similar to those of native speakers. The results showed that speakers of Chinese, Indonesian, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, and Arabic ranked expressions of thanks differently than native speakers. (Contains 35 references.) (MDM)
