Interactional Features of Repair Negotiation in NS-NNS Interaction on Two Task Types: Information Gap and Personal Information Exchange
Kitajima, Ryu
Linguistics and Education: An International Research Journal, v24 n2 p165-178 Jun 2013
The studies in task-based approaches in second language acquisition claim that controlled and goal convergent tasks such as information gap tasks surpass open-ended conversations such as personal information exchange tasks for the development of the learner's interlanguage, in that the formers promote more repair negotiation. And yet, few studies so far have focused on the fine-tuned analysis of repair negotiation which occurs when learners are engaged in both those tasks. This study investigates the sequential environments where repair negotiations occur in the NS-NNS interaction in two types of tasks: information gap tasks and personal information exchange tasks in order to understand the interactional features of repair negotiation entailed with both those task types and their potential influence on learners' interlanguage development.
