In this seminar, I will present the progress of my PhD research project, Second Language Acquisition of Chinese and Thai Nominal Phrases. It will begin with a summary of linguistic phenomena that are foci of my study, namely the word order, the use of classifiers in non-counting contexts and plural markers in Chinese and Thai. Behaviour of the two languages will be contrasted and accounted for under a featural approach. With the goal to find out how the relevant features are acquired by second language learners, a quasi-experimental study with Thai learners of Chinese and Chinese learners of Thai will be conducted, using sentence production and self-paced reading methods. A pilot study of the experiment was conducted with a small group of Thai learners of Chinese in May 2014. Its design and some preliminary results will be introduced and discussed in the seminar.

This talk is part of the Seminars on Chinese Linguistics and L2 Chinese series.
