On the Use of "Then"/"After That" in the Marking of Chronological Order: Insights from Vietnamese and Chinese Learners of ESL.
Tickoo, Asha
System, v30 n1 p107-24 Mar 2002
Examines the use of "then"/"after that" by Vietnamese and Chinese learners of English as a Second Language, suggesting that this temporal adverb poses as much of a learning challenge as morphological means of temporal reference. Shows that a learner's 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.(Author/VWL)
