Abstract:

Key Features:

Aimed to discover what strategies and linguistic devices a child
second-language learner uses in making requests in English and what
developmental path the learning process follows.  Attempts to clarify
understanding of the pragmatic development of a learner's
interlanguage

Description This book examines the acquisition of requests in English
by a seven-year-old Japanese girl during her seventeen-month residence
in Australia. The study focuses on the linguistic repertoire available
to the child as she attempts to make requests and vary these to suit
different goals and addressees. This book helps unravel features of
pragmatic development in the child's interlanguage, a subject about
which we yet know very little.
