For this study, I compiled three different types of corpora: Interlanguage (IL), L1 and Target Language (TL). For IL corpora, students’ free compositions were used whilst newspaper texts and EFL textbooks were assembled for L1 and TL corpora respectively.

By conducting multiple comparisons of the three corpora, I examined how different factors such as the effect of L1 knowledge, the amount of exposure to L2 input, and the properties of inherent verb meanings in L2 affect the acquisition of verb SF patterns.

As an 32 Michael Hoey example of spoken priming, the has an aversion to appearing at the beginning of conversational turns (McCarthy, personal communication).
