Dressler, Roswita; Mueller, Katherine – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2022
Fostering target language use in second language classrooms is a persistent challenge for teachers.

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."

Fischer, Brett; Viens, Danielle; Rondeau, Diane; Turgeon-Gouin, Catherine; Plaxton, Elizabeth – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2021
Globalization and new technologies mean that additional-language students now have unprecedented access to naturalistic interactions with native or highly competent speakers (HCSs).
