L2 Acquisition of Japanese Unaccusative Verbs.
Hirakawa, Makiko
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v23 n2 p221-45 Jun 2001
Investigated the acquisition of Japanese unaccusative verbs by English-speaking learners, specifically whether second language learners are sensitive to syntactic and semantic properties associated with the "takusan" construction as a syntactic test and the "-teiru" construction as a semantic test. Results show learners generally know the properties investigated. (Author/VWL)
