Zero Anaphora in Nonnative Texts: Null-Object Anaphora in Nepali English.
Hartford, Beverly S.
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v17 n2 p245-61 Jun 1995
Investigated the occurrence of null objects in a stable nonnative variety of English spoken in Nepal, finding that Nepali speakers of English may omit both direct and indirect objects in contexts where native speakers may not. The resultant discourse organization for Nepali English requires greater addressee participation than native English discourse. (contains 24 references) (MDM)
