The Learning of Pronouns and Word Order : With a Focus on Chinese and Japanese Learners of English

Zhang, Shixia
This study was designed to investigate whether there were differences in SLA (second language acquisition) between learners with different language backgrounds, specifically Japanese and Chinese learners of English, and to investigate the effect of the two language structures upon SLA: pronouns and word order. The main conclusion of this study is that the differences in second language learning for Japanese and Chinese high school students could not be explained from the viewpoint of differences of lan-guage structures.
