Simpson, Barbara Lazenby
Language Awareness, v6 n4 p233-37 1997
This paper considers initial findings of a research study examining the strategic behavior of nonnative speakers of English when they are faced with situations requiring pragmatic competence in a second language. The development of first-language pragmatic competence is described then the acquisition of pragmatic competence by adult second-language learners is examined, and qualitative data samples are discussed.
