Inexplicitness: What Is It and Should We Be Teaching It?
Cheng, Winnie; Warren, Martin
Applied Linguistics, v20 n3 p293-315 Sep 1999
Focuses on the use of inexplicitness by native speakers (NSs) and nonnative speakers (NNSs) engaged in English conversations, for example impromptu, uninstitutionalized discourses. Shows that a characteristic of NNSs spoken language is the inappropriate level of inexplicitness used and the ways in which inexplicitness is manifested in the discourse. (Author/VWL)
