Prof. HUANG Li 黄立 (Peking University): 构式语法视野下的语法习得研究 (Construction Grammar and the Study of Second Language Acquisition of Chinese Grammar)
July 3, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Abstract: The study of grammar acquisition of Chinese as a second /foreign language has achieved a lot of research results in the past decades, which is not only reflected by the further progression of research, but also by the constant expanding of research on theoretical perspectives of grammar acquisition. In recent years, the study of Chinese grammar acquisition has taken new steps along with the development of relevant theories and methods in construction grammar and linguistic typology. Error analysis of interlanguage, the description and explanation of order and/or sequence of grammar acquisition can be linked to relevant theories of construction grammar and specifically of Chinese construction. Through analysis of form-meaning mapping in interlanguage grammar, the discovery, description and explanation of the developmental patterns in grammar acquisition have improved, and those aspects can be more easily applied to Chinese second language teaching, and thus raise teaching efficiency.
The lecture will be held in Chinese language.
