Non-Native Speakers' Production of Modified Comprehensible Output and Second Language Learning.
Shehdeh, Ali
Language Learning, v49 n4 p627-75 Dec 1999
Investigated how well nonnative speakers (NNSs) could modify their output toward comprehensibility when interacting with native speakers (NSs) and NNSs, noting how often modified comprehensible output (MCO) was other- or self-initiated. Picture-dictation and opinion-exchange task data indicated that most repairs were self-initiated. NNS-NNS interactions produced more other-initiations and other-initiated MCOs during picture-dictation. (SM)
