Performanzphänomene in gesprochenem Lernerenglisch - Eine korpusbasierte Pilotstudie
The present paper reports on a pilot study of performance phenomena in the spoken inter-language of advanced German learners of English. The focus is on selected syntactic features which the corpus-based Longman Grammar of Spoken and Written English (Biber et al. 1999) considers to be typical of spontaneous spoken language, i.e. repetitions, hesitation phenomena and contractions. This pilot study is based on the German component of the Louvain International Database of Spoken English Interlanguage (LINDSEI-Ger) and the corresponding native control corpus LOCNEC (Louvain Corpus of Natuve English Conversations). While the focus of the presented paper is on the corpus-based description of the spoken syntax of advanced spoken interlanguage, some language-pedagogical implications are also sketched out, especially with regard to possible ways of teaching and learning strategies to overcome dysfluencies and to get closer to native target norm.
