Nakuma, Constancio
Applied Psycholinguistics, v18 n2 p219-35 Jun 1997
A method for measuring attrition of communicative competence is introduced and illustrated using data from spontaneous multiperson conversations of Spanish L-3 subjects from Ghana. The method involves creation of a multifactor index using defined temporal variables, frequency counts of selected verbal behaviors, and grammatical information, and can be used to measure either attrition or accumulation of competence.
