Nelson, Gayle L.; Carson, Joan; Al Batal, Mahmoud; El Bakary, Waguida
Applied Linguistics, v23 n2 p163-89 Jun 2002
Investigated similarities and differences between Egyptian Arabic and American English refusals using a modified version of the discourse completion test. Thirty U.S. interviews resulted in 298 refusals, and 24 Egyptian interviews resulted in 250 refusals. Results indicate both groups use similar strategies with similar frequency in making refusals.
