The Linguistics Colloquium series presents Rickey Larkin and Tanya Tytko discussing “A Corpus-Based Analysis of This/These in L2 Student Writing” on Friday, Feb. 21, from 12:55 to 1:55 p.m. in Gordy 301.

Larkin and Tytko are MA Linguistics students at Ohio University

Abstract:  Interested in using corpus methods? In this colloquium, we talk about our research on proximal anaphoric demonstratives in L2 student writing. Using corpus-based methods, we explore the use of demonstratives pronouns and determiners in high- and low-rated university student argumentative essays. We present the findings of this comparative analysis of this/these in student writing and discuss implications for L2 writing pedagogy.
