Dressler, Roswita; Mueller, Katherine – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2022

Etienne, Corinne – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2022
This article explores French L1 speakers' attitudes toward French L2 speakers' negation use. Negation in prescriptive grammars calls for a pre-verbal ne and a post-verbal element like "pas."

While several studies have examined ESL teachers' classroom assessment…

Although audience plays an important role in all models of writing, there has been little research on how second language (L2) writers conceptualize and address their audience during the writing process. This study starts to address this research gap by examining when and how L2 learners consider their audience while writing in L2, as well as the…
