The Role of Syntactic Structure in Discourse Structure: Signaling Logical and Prominence Relations.
Tyler, Andrea
Applied Linguistics, v15 n3 p243-62 Sep 1994
Lectures of two first-semester teaching assistants, one native American English speaker (NS) and one Korean (NNS) whose discourse was perceived as difficult to follow, were examined. It is argued that the NS's hypotatic constructions provide explicit signals of logical and prominence relations that are missing in the NNS's discourse. (51 references) (Author/LB)
