Second Language Processing at Different Ages: Do Younger Learners Pay More Attention to Prosodic Cues or to Sentence Structure?
Harley, Birgit; And Others
Language Learning, v45 n1 p43-71 Mar 1995
Investigates the relationship between age of arrival in the second-language environment and a preference for prosodic versus syntactic cues to sentence interpretation in English. The study found that older English-as-a-Second-Language learners were just as likely as the younger ones to attend to prosody rather than syntax. (43 references) (Author/CK)
