Abstract:

This work explores the development of aspects of discourse competence by
French immersion students in Ontario, Canada. It represents a new front for
second language acquisition and immersion research in that, firstly, it
provides an in-depth analysis of the mastery by immersion students of
several polysemous and poly-functional words (i.e. comme/like;
donc/alors/(ça) fait que/so; bon; and là), words playing key roles in the
expression of fundamental semantic notions (e.g., comparison, consequence,
location) and discursive functions (e.g. emphasis, topic shifting, turn
yielding). Secondly, it offers insight into the use of discourse markers by
immersion students, an as yet under-researched area. Finally, it documents
the influence on second language learners' discourse competence exerted by
a range of independent factors, many of which have not before been applied
to research on the development of this competence.
