Learner Hypothesis and Past Tense Marking in Vietnamese English.
Tickoo, Asha
World Englishes, v15 n2 p183-92 Jul 1996
Examines samples of writing by first-language speakers of Vietnamese to show that grounding, rather than lexical aspect, accounts for their selective marking of past tense. The article suggests that the learner-hypothesis governing this use of English past tense derives from the transference of a grounding-marking principle from a tense-free language.
