This presentation will show the design and some preliminary results of the experiment of my ongoing PhD project on four aspect markers in Chinese and their behaviours in L2 Chinese Grammars. My PhD project conducts an empirical study in the framework of the Feature Reassembly Hypothesis, discusses the key semantic features of the four aspect markers le, guo, zhe, and zai and their interactions with different situation types, compares the aspectual systems of Chinese and English, in terms of viewpoint aspect and their corresponding morphological markers. To reveal how English-speaking learners of Chinese establish L1-L2 mapping and how they alter the feature set of Chinese aspect markers in subsequent development, an Acceptability Judgement task, an Interpretation task, a Sentence Production task and an Elicited Imitation task are involved in my preliminary test.

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