Taylor, Gregory
Foreign Language Annals, v35 n2 p171-89 Mar-Apr 2002
Examined whether gambit use in Spanish--words or phrases that facilitate the flow of conversation by giving the speaker time to organize her thoughts--can be taught effectively in the classroom, allowing the student to use gambits appropriately in unplanned speech. Results suggest that students can be taught to use gambits effectively in the classroom. (Author/VWL)
