When the learned system is activated

Research output: Working paper


This paper focuses on the discussion of the general characteristics of 12 Swedish learners’ oral production of the Chinese aspect markers le, guò, zài, and zhe. Their oral performance is discussed with respect to Krashen’s Monitor hypothesis (1978, 1981, 1987) on the role of conscious learning. The functions of the Monitor in planning, editing and correcting is discussed respectively in relation to the specific conditions of the learners’ production and with reference to the results.
