The Transfer of Language Speech Behavior into a Second Language: A Basis for Cultural Stereotypes?
DeCapua, Andrea
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v9 n1 p21-35 Jun 1998
Examines the phenomenon of pragmatic transfer as a possible basis for cultural stereotypes. Data from second language (L2) German learners of English are compared with data from native speakers of American English. Results suggest that the German English L2 speakers produced responses more in keeping with German rules of speaking and conventions of use than with American ones. (Author/VWL)
