L1 transfer under language processing constraint: L2 acquisition of Chinese wh-questions
The present empirical study investigates L1 transfer from the language processability perspective, using Chinese wh-question as the test structure. According to the Developmentally Moderated Transfer Hypothesis (Pienemann, Di Biase, Kawaguchi and H�kansson 2005, henceforth DMTH), L1 transfer is constrained by processability of the L2 material, hence, it is �sensitive to the developmental state of the learner�s language� (Pienemann et al. 2005, p.111). As the Chinese wh-question is in-situ, it...[Show more]
