Acquisition of Base-Generated Topics by English-Speaking Learners of Chinese.
Yuan, Boping
Language Learning, v45 n4 p567-603 Dec 1995
Investigated the acquisition of base-generated topics in Mandarin Chinese by British students learning Chinese. The hypothesis is not confirmed that it would not be difficult for English speakers to acquire the base-generated topic in Chinese because in the acquisition of Chinese, English-speaking learners are exposed to positive evidence of base-generated topics.
