Huebner, Thom – LEARN Journal: Language Education and Acquisition Research Network, 2019

In this article, I argue that being a competent…

Jaturongkachoke, Ketkanda – LEARN Journal: Language Education and Acquisition Research Network, 2019
Numeral classifiers have been studied by both linguists who consider them to be function morphemes with no semantic significance and those who contend that they are semantically loaded.
