  4. 4. L’acquisition des Catégories Fonctionnelles : Étude comparative du développement du DP français chez des enfants et des apprenants adultes

    Författare :Jonas Granfeldt; Franska; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; 2L1; L1; L2; DP; comparison; universal grammar; functional categories; bilingual children; adult learners; morphology; syntax; Rizzi; structural economy; categorial uniformity; transfer; definite article; elision; incorporation; maximal projections; heads; development; acquisition; French; Swedish; gender; number; agreement; triggers; French language; Franska språket;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the development of the DP (the Determiner Phrase) in bilingual first (2L1) and in adult second (L2) language acquisition of French. The thesis shows that the children and the adult Swedish learners acquire syntactic categories differently: the children follow a structural economy principle in positing as small categories as possible (Rizzi, 1998).

  5. 5. Learning Idiomaticity : A Corpus-Based Study of Idiomatic Expressions in Learners' Written Production

    Författare :Maria Wiktorsson; Engelska; []

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this study is to investigate how Swedish learners of English (at different levels of proficiency) master idiomaticity in their target language. I argue that idiomaticity can be related to the storage and use of multi-word expressions that are preferred by native speakers. LÄS MER
