The Lexico-Syntactic Marking of Chronological Order: Insights from Vietnamese Learners of ESL.
Tickoo, Asha
Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, v21 n1 p109-24 1998
This study of the use of "then"/"after that" by Vietnamese English-as-a-Second-Language learners suggests that the temporal adverbial poses a significant learning challenge similar to morphological means of temporal reference. Learner usage is monitored by a looser notion of salience, which emerges from the transference of a salience-marking principle from a tense-free first language. (SM)
